Meet your consultant first

If you would like to meet your consultant before deciding whether to take up the Global Premier School Consultancy, we can arrange this. The fee for a Welcome Meeting with your consultant is £300. If, after the meeting, you take up the full service, this sum is deducted from the cost of the consultancy. 

The Good Schools Guide Educational Consultants will give you completely impartial and professional advice based solely on what is best for you and your child. We never take commission from any school.

We are not agents. You do not need an agent to gain a place at a UK school.

"As you suggested, we contacted the school yesterday, who responded sensitively and swiftly to secure an immediate place. After weeks of angst and sleepless nights about what to do, just half an hour with you gave us the confidence to set our son on a new direction for his future education.  We now feel he will be in a school where he can work to his potential and have the support to grow and flourish. Thank you so very much for helping to make this happen." S and A N
"Our consultant has done an outstanding job: her instincts were spot on and her organisation faultless." Mr MR
"We started last week without even knowing the schools in London we should be applying for, to having been accepted to all four schools. I can't express enough my gratitude for the great work you did for us. We were very late in this part of our moving process and your excellent responsiveness, ability to listen and understand what we were looking for, and efficient approach in scheduling visits and assessments paid off tremendously well for us. Thank you so much! We feel so lucky at having found you and grateful for your work! I hope there are more Beths in London to help us with the other needs we'll have." Mr and Mrs VP

Your child – nothing matters more
