How independent schools have become so relevant

The New Meritocracy is thorough analysis of how the independent schools sector has transformed itself dramatically from 1979-2015.

Peel offers a forensic examination of how independent schools have benefited from competition and raised their standards while remaining candid about new problems facing them.
