Independent Private Schools In The UK

If your family and your children are interested in arts it can sometimes be quite difficult to find a suitable school.

There are not too many schools in the United Kingdom today where creative arts like music or theatre play an important role.

Especially when it comes to many public schools in the UK it seems to me that anything that is related to support your children’s creativity is seen as something being second rated, if not ignored altogether.


I found that independent private schools can be a much better option if you want a well rounded education for your children that also includes creative activities, whether it’s the arts or activities such as sports. In my opinion, those things should be equally important for so many reasons. It can help them to discover their creative potential and interests, and of course it’s not a secret that sports can have a beneficial effect on their overall health too.

The last time before we decided on a private school for our children we took our time to compare several private schools and what they can offer. (Here you might want to note that a lot of schools may well look good on paper or on their websites, but reality may often look quite different.). So what we did is that we allowed a short trial runĀ  for children to see which one would be better suited for their interests. After two weeks we sat down to discuss which school would be best.
