Win a pair of VIP Gold tickets to The Independent Schools Show worth £200!

Looking for a first, new or next school for your child? Then you'll want nab FREE tickets to London’s Battersea Park on 13-14 Nov for The Independent Schools Show

Fancy picking the brains of the country’s best educators and getting an inside look at the top schools in the UK? Step right this way, as we’re giving you exclusive free access to Muddy VIP Fast Track tickets to The Independent Schools School on 13 and 14 November – plus the chance to win one of two pairs of Gold VIP tickets worth £200 each! Most important of all, you’ll get to meet Madame Muddy herself, our CEO Hero Brown, and can hear her talk about her experience of relocating for education. Now if THAT doesn’t convince you, what will?

First things first, here’s the lowdown on The Independent Schools Show. Held at The Evolution Centre in London’s Battersea Park, the show gives parents exclusive access to a whopping 200 schools throughout the UK, from nurseries right through to sixth form college (so it’s worth a visit no matter what age your brood).

There are some seriously big names in British education on board, including Fettes College, Wycombe Abbey, Cheltenham Ladies’ College, Marlborough College, Haileybury and Wellington College, as well as independent school groups such as GDST. Thinking of exploring further afield? Leading boarding schools from Ireland, Switzerland and the USA are also exhibiting.

There are also over 100 speakers across the weekend, from the Chief Exec of the Independent Association of Prep Schools to the High Master of St Paul’s School (and, vitally, yours truly), so you’ll be rubbing elbows with the cream of the crop and able to scoop the best inside knowledge. Topics include everything from affordability and admission requirements to what parents can expect from their school in an ever-changing world – whether you’re considering sending your little one to an indie for the first time or you’ve been in the game for a while now, there are some pearls of wisdom here for everyone.

On to the good stuff – we’re giving you access to all this money-can’t-buy knowledge for free! Book with our exclusive Muddy Stilettos VIP code Muddy2021 and you’ll get all this:

  • FREE entry (on the door price £15)
