How to use School Search Service

We are an independent consultancy (we receive no commission from any schools) offering tailor-made advice to parents, based on our extensive knowledge of state and private schools.  

We can help you:

If you are unfamiliar with the English schooling system, perhaps moving from abroad

If you need to find a school at short notice.

If you just need assistance unravelling the options available to you.

How we work

Our service starts with an initial consultation by phone, Skype or in person in central London to discuss your family circumstances and needs. If you are happy with our proposals, we proceed to the full school search service.

Image

Research

We research potentially suitable schools and provide a full written report.

Image

Discuss

We discuss with you, finalise a shortlist, liaise with schools, and assist with setting up visits.

Image

Communicate

We keep in touch until your child has a place at a school you are happy with.

Telephone Advice

We offer an hour long telephone/Skype consultation to help resolve a specific issue. Your child may have offers from multiple schools or universities, you may be considering boarding over day school, or you may be weighing up whether your child should do A levels or the IB. We can help.

University advice

The huge range of universities and courses in the UK can make choosing the right destination and course a challenge. We can help unravel the possibilities.

We have an initial discussion with the student by phone, Skype or in person in central London to discuss their interests, achievements and aims. We then provide a full written report on the most suitable universities and courses.

We can help with advice on writing a personal statement, including two edits.
