There was a lot of cheering at the TV this weekend by the School Guide team. No, we're not talking about the Britain’s Got Talent Semi Finals but an appearance by our website built for parents on the BBC,
Webscape reporter Kate Russell fronts BBC Click, the guide to all the latest gadgets, websites, games and computer industry news that airs on Saturday and Sunday on BBC2 and BBC News 24. Kate contacted us to say she thought it was “a great service” and that she had included School Guide in her weekly round up of the best websites and apps.
Her report on School Guide was accompanied by one of our favourite tracks: ABC by the Jackson 5.

"It’s back to school in the UK this week so parents will no doubt be thinking about the next steps for their children’s education." says Kate. "School Guide brings key school statistics from official sources together in one place and is free to use.”
"The colour coded design makes it quick and easy to choose the best, primary, secondary or independent school to look at it.”
We couldn't agree more. The start of this summer term is a great time to start sussing out local schools ahead of open days in September and school applications being submitted in October. School Guide is a great jumping off point to compare local schools performance data and puts school website and telephone numbers at your fingertips. We really do make it as easy as ABC.
