An international family living in north London had an 11 year old son at a local prep school. He was unhappy there, and had failed to get any 13+ senior school offers via the pre-test, as the parents had not understood what preparation was needed. We found him a place for the following term at an all-through school where he felt much more at home.
A family contacted us in July, having just heard that they were relocating to London in August and needing junior school places for their two children from September. We arranged for them to visit several schools the following week, and they were offered places at each one.
A mother moving to London with daughters aged 11 and 8 asked for help to find a school with a progressive ethos that would accept both girls despite their English not being fluent. We researched and approached possible schools and found a suitable one that mother and daughters were all happy with.
A Chinese family who had moved to England the previous summer had two teenage daughters at the only school that would accept them at short notice with little English. They wanted to understand the options once the girls’ English fluency had improved. After discussions, we concluded that boarding school would provide the best environment for the girls, who had very different academic abilities. We accompanied mother and daughters on school visits and agreed on a school that catered for both their needs and was happy to offer places to both of them.
