The Spectator and Education
The Spectator champions the civilising power of learning, both as a route to employment and for the creation of well-rounded individuals. The best education is not just about cramming for exams, but preparing the young for life in all its aspects. Unfortunately, with the falling standards in state education and a distinct lack of grammar schools, independent schooling is often a compelling choice for those who want the best for their children. The Spectator Independent Schools supplement aims to shed light on the excellence of independent schools, and serve as a guide to those who are considering investing in a private education.
