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

Your child – nothing matters more

  • Finding a state grammar school

      There are currently around 164 state funded grammar schools located in 36 English local authorities, with around 167,000 pupils between them. There are a further 69 grammar schools in Northern Ireland, but none in Wales or Scotland. Almost half of these are in what 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, with only a few grammar schools. How to find a state grammar school Word of warning: not all selective grammar schools have…

  • 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 or Charlotte Church standing. And sometimes, just sometimes, parental pride is justified.
