In all the excitement of a new baby - both before and after the birth - new parents often start to think ahead about schooling and education. This is especially so in London with its unique pressures. It can also seem particularly worrying for new parents whose own education was not in the UK and who feel, therefore, at a disadvantage when it comes to planning ahead.

We offer you our New Parents' Meeting.

You can use this meeting however you like:

  • to ask general questions about schools and schooling in London
  • to ask about state and independent schools
  • to check on how admissions work at the different stages
  • to find out about the provision in different local authorities and boroughs
  • to ensure that you have all the information you will need to plan your child's future.

How Does It Work?

A New Parents' Meeting lasts up to 90 minutes in a venue of your choice.

We can meet you during the day or, if you prefer, in the evening.

Your advisor will be one of our most experienced and knowledgeable consultants.

You may like to meet your consultant on your own. Or you may prefer to get together with other new or expectant parents and pool your questions - and share the cost!

How Much Does It Cost?

A New Parents' Meeting for you - or you and your partner = £300.

A New Parents' Meeting for you and up to two friends/couples:

  • two parents/couples = £450
  • three parents/couples = £550

Your child – nothing matters more

  • Testimonials from our parents.

    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 Good…
