AboutUK School Search allows you to find state and independent schools across the United Kingdom. We believe we are the only site that displays schools on a map for all four countries: England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland.
Start by entering the postcode of your search area (or in most cases the name of a town or locality will also work fine), and then filter results by specifying a number of criteria: religious character; whether mainstream or not; whether state or independent; the age and gender of children accepted; and whether there is provision for boarding.
Based on your selection, up to 20 results are shown according to distance from your starting point. Click on the names of schools, or their map markers, to pop up full details of that school including the rating given by their inspectorate. If the school has their own website you can also click through to it from here.
We try to maintain our data as accurately as possible, but inevitably from time to time some information will become out of date. Please use the feedback form to let us know and we will sort it out as soon as we can.
