Posted on 17th Apr 2024 in John Catt Publications, Prep Schools Guide

We are delighted to announce the publication of John Catt's Preparatory Schools 2024, our print and digital guide to more than 1,300 prep and junior schools in the UK providing education for 2–13-year-olds.

The 27th edition of this guidebook features profiles of more than 50 leading schools, as well as directory information on all schools with a prep department.

All this information is replicated in the pages of this website, where you can search for all independent schools by region, county, postcode and for day or boarding schools and single-sex schools.

There is also an editorial section featuring articles on a range of topics centred on preparatory education, including curriculum, wellbeing, top tips for choosing a school, and the future of prep schools. We will be posting these articles online over the coming weeks.

The guidebook is available through all online channels. The digital version can be viewed here:
