September edition of IET is out now!

The September issue of Independent Education Today magazine is now available to download from our website and app store

Straighten your tie – it’s a brand new term and your students are looking sharper than ever. Take a look at our special uniform feature on page 13, which is packed with insight from top schools and schoolwear suppliers. 

This summer saw some of the highest ever results in the International Baccalaureate and A levels. More schools are choosing to offer the diploma programme as an alternative to A levels, with 4,997 students collecting results this year – an 11% increase over five years. In an increasingly global business community, having an internationally recognised qualification can only be good for students’ career paths. 

Just like any new year, 2015/16 is full of possibilities. Looking for something fresh to try in your classroom? With many schools concerned about the ‘skills gap’ between what’s on the curriculum and what’s required in the 21st century workplace, our feature on teaching and learning trends will offer plenty of food for thought. We also take you behind the scenes at stunning Lancing College (page 32), show you how to be more water efficient (page 37) and unravel the myths of Steiner education on page nine. 

We’d love to hear what you’re up to. Have you got something to say on a hot topic, or a great piece of news to share with us? Send it to me at
