In the big new, 32-page edition of The Knowledge on Wednesday, local experts give the details on Progress 8, the complicated new advance on traditional school 'league tables' - as well as the dissident voice that points out its potentially massive implications for schools.
We report on the interview the new principal of The GM had with some of his students in advance of taking up the role in September.
We show how schools are using breakfast clubs to get pupils ready for school bright, early and well-fed for learning; and the helping hand other institutions can give at the other end of the school experience.
There's a major overview of options if your GCSE or A-level results don't go as well as you hoped (or you do better), and alternatives to university from some students who have already chosen a different way.
Learn how the Duke of Edinburgh scheme remains as strong and popular as ever with students and employers; and how engineering might not be sexy, but could certainly be a great career choice for boys and girls.
Speaking of engineering, one local school is putting together its own flight simulator and others are getting increasingly keen on making movies.
There are tips on getting your child through the first day of school - primary or secondary - and there's sport, politics, crafts and much, much more, including the local schools taking education into gardens and allotments - packed into your free copy of The Knowledge in your Chronicle on August 5.
AND THERE'S MORE: Coming up on August 14 a special Knowledge supplement on A-level results; and on August 21 another on the just-out GCSE results. Don't miss them!
