Independent Schools Council
ISC independent schools are among the best in the world and educate more than 500,000 children in the UK
The ISC brings together seven associations to represent over 1,300 independent schools and was founded in 1973.
ISC offers the following information online: a school search, guidance on how to apply to an independent school, information on SEND provision, school fee assistance and bursary advice. We are unable to assist with complaints, recommend schools, provide league tables or offer direct school fee assistance or bursaries.
