Meet your consultant first

If you would like to meet your consultant before deciding whether to take up the 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.

Testimonials and recommendations:
"A huge thank you… I found the session extremely useful and sent in our acceptance of the place with confidence today! I have also suggested your service to two of my friends, one of whom has a session booked today. Please pass my thanks to my advisor, her sensible but enthusiastic response to my questions was very helpful and supportive. Her advice was very useful also in guiding me, when we revisited two of the other schools we were considering. We are now looking forward to our daughter’s secondary education with a feeling of excitement and confidence." Mrs NJ
"I just wanted to say a huge thank you for all you have done this week. You have clearly pulled some strings to get me access to schools where its not usually the done thing. This has been immensely useful in helping us form an opinion given that we were struggling to form a clear one before. Just as valuable has been the insights you have provided along the way – not just on the schools themselves but on the whole process and how the parts link together. My daughter asked me bluntly if I felt the consultancy service has been value for money – I can unequivocally say yes." Mrs EC
"Not a school we would have considered without your suggestion… Amazingly, we have fallen under the spell of Frensham Heights ! We have visited twice, once on an open day and once more just us when we had a longer chat with the Head and spoke with more teachers. Martin and I are very impressed with the place and we all love it. It is most certainly not a school we would have considered without your suggestion, so thanks very much for that!" Mr and Mrs B

    Some special needs are easy to spot, others are only determined once a child has experienced considerable difficulties, frustrations or social and emotional problems.  Over the years, diagnosis of and provision for SEN have improved, but both can still be a minefield. Identifying different kinds of special educational needs Few children fit a condition perfectly – if they do, we tend to say they are a ‘classic’ case. Most will not be straightforward: perhaps a dyslexic with dyspraxia and a touch of ADD, or a child with ASD who also has Down’s syndrome. Just as special needs are hard to…

  • Finding a state grammar school

    Counties such as Kent or Buckinghamshire are ‘selective authorities’ and most families will have at least one grammar school close to where they live. Elsewhere, for example in Reading or Kingston-on-Thames, there are just one or two grammar schools and competition for places at these is ferocious. How to find a state grammar school Grammar schools are located in 36 English local authorities. Almost half of these are considered 'selective authorities' (eg Kent and Buckinghamshire), where around one in five local children are selected for grammar school entry based on ability. The others are areas such as Barnet or Kingston,…

  • Schools for children with performing arts talents

    As proud parents, we all know our children are unique. They're smarter than anyone else's, funnier, certainly more attractive, better behaved and above all bursting with the kind of talent that would leave Daniel Radcliffe, Jamie Bell and Charlotte Church standing. And for some extraordinary - though totally understandable - reason, everyone but us seems blind to our offspring's God-given artistic gifts.
