Which School? for Special Needs 2020/21 available now in print and online

Posted on 12th Jun 2020 in John Catt Publications, Choosing a school

The 2020/21 edition of Which School? for Special Needs – the leading guidebook to independent special schools in the UK – is available now in print and online.

This guidebook, now in its 29th edition, features independent and non-maintained schools and colleges of further education in the UK for pupils with sensory, physical, learning, social, emotional and behavioural difficulties, or dyslexia.

The new edition is currently being distributed to our mailing list, including to the SEND department of every local education authority in the UK.

The guidebook has been helping families and local authorities select the right school provisions for their children for more than 20 years.

It features detailed profiles of more than 40 leading schools and groups and directory information on more than 500 independent special schools. It also includes a directory of maintained special schools and academies, and useful information on relevant groups and associations.

The profiles of independent special schools are replicated on this website, with extra online features such as video, social media and direct email and website links.

There are also a number of editorial articles from leading figures across the sector; we will be posting these articles online over the next few weeks.

To order a print copy of the new edition, please visit our online bookshop. For any other enquiries, please email us as enquiries@johncatt.com.
