You’ve got the job. You’ve made the decision. For whatever reason, you’re on the move. There is always a lot to think about and it can be hard to know where to start. Find a new house? Or find a new school? And where are the good schools?
This is where we come in. The Good Schools Guide Education Consultants loves helping relocating families! We do it all the time. If you’re coming into an area you don’t know at all and where you have no friends to ask, then it can be tough to know where to start. And if you are also managing the family, holding down a job and dealing with estate agents and solicitors, navigating local authority websites or school prospectuses can be just a little more pressure than you want.
We know that it’s not just a question of a list of schools but of a manageable family life in terms of location, commuting and not going in three directions at once! Our twenty-five-odd consultants – all over the country though with a concentration in the south east – know all the schools and can find you as close as possible what you want for all your children. You may want them all in the same schools or they may need different schools. We listen and we find a solution that will enable a workable family life and have each child in the best school for them.
We can advise on catchment areas, admissions and even on where to live. We can help you with B and Bs or hotels if you need local places to stay while you visit schools. We can produce data and statistics if you want them or just tell-it-like-it-is reviews of schools with all the human detail like pastoral care and uniform a teenager might be prepared to wear.

We have been very impressed with the Good Schools Guide. From our first contact with administrative team, it was clear that we were dealing with a professional organisation. They were very helpful finding the right package for our needs. Thereafter, their experienced consultant asked insightful questions and was able to understand our individual education needs almost immediately. Her knowledge of the local school environment and how best to navigate it have been invaluable. She has gone beyond the professional expectations we had of an education consultant. We have a very comforting sense of having found a partner in the…
While there is no such thing as the “perfect” school and a good school for one child will not be a good school for another, there is no question that UK schools have a deserved world-wide reputation for all-round excellence. The Good Schools Guide Education Consultants regularly help children to gain places at all the top schools in the country.
