14-15 NOVEMBER 2020


At the Battersea Evolution, its home for the past 14 years, the Independent Schools Show has held a key autumn weekend in the calendar, carefully chosen to facilitate your search for the right school for your child. We believe that this combination of date and location presents the ideal conditions for our visiting families to consider next steps as they navigate school decisions.

For now, the Show will take place as planned on the weekend of 14/15th November 2020.

However, as responsible event organisers, our foremost concern is your safety. Therefore, should Covid-19 continue to disrupt our daily way of life into the autumn, we have secured contingency dates in the Spring and Summer of 2021. We will keep you updated over the coming months, but please rest assured that your tickets will be transferable to these new dates.
