Australia's No.1... No Contest!

Schools Guide is Australia's premier non-government schools publication. Full Stop.

The trusted original since 1999.

With documented, actual distribution (over 1,500,000 copies distributed as of 2022).

Backed by Australia's most-visited private schools website.


QLD Cover 2024 smWhy Schools Guide?

Schools Guide is staffed by a friendly, family team of professionals. Trusted, honest and reliable since 1999. We don't say we'll deliver if we can't. We promise to offer schools the best possible products at reasonable prices and get your message out there. That's what we do and that's all we do. Every day. No lies. No tricks. We'll keep our promise to you and we guarantee it!

Don't know who to trust? Trust the original not the imitators.

There have been a proliferation of websites and 'publications' recently purporting to provide similar products to the Schools Guide. Many of those provide very little benefit to schools, if any. So it can be hard to sort the reputable from the rabble. Schools Guide delivers. Here's why...


10 reasons why Schools Guide is No1.

  1. Australia's number 1 schools website. That's a fact.
  2. Australia's most-distributed magazines of their kind. That's a fact.
  3. Private Schools Guide website was the first and is still the best. Fact.
  4. We send one of our staff to meet each school in person so you have a face you can trust.
  5. We focus only on non-government schools. We don't have lawyer directories or dentists websites. We don't do USA websites. We don't do guides to this and that and the other.  Just one focus - Australian non-government schools.
  6. We'll gladly provide any advertiser with our detailed list of hundreds of actual distribution points in each state. Check them for yourself. You can even tell us where you want it and we'll get it there.
  7. All copies are always free.
  8. Over 300 schools repeat their advertising year after year.
  9. We update our products each year with new and innovative improvements aimed at getting your message out there better than any other mediums.
  10. And many of our competitors (if you can call them that) continually copy our products and ideas. Since imitation is the sincerest form of flattery we'll take that as a compliment to our team.

Still Don't believe us? That's fine, we're happy to prove ourselves. Ask us about our Schools Guide Promise offer - advertise with us in the next edition and we'll deliver exactly what we promise. We won't require payment until you've received your copies of the finished publication. If you still don't believe us we'll go one step further. We'll let you hold off on your payment until after we've completed distribution in your area. Plus, we'll even let you tell us where you want it distributed. If it doesn't get there you pay nothing. That's our promise. None of our competitors can match that because they can't deliver. There is simply no need for you to ever advertise in any other similar publication. We've got you covered.
