Setting up a School/Joining ISC

Enquiries about how to set up an independent school in England should be directed to the Department for Education. Information is available online at

We are often approached by schools or associations enquiring about membership of ISC. Please note that ISC does not offer individual membership to schools and all enquiries should be addressed to one of our eight associations here. If you are an association of schools enquiring about membership, please write to us - Contact Us.
