The Good Schools Guide Education Consultants

We advise parents on everything to do with children and their education 

Parents tell us:

  • We could live anywhere. Find us the school, then we will move.
  • This is our commute. The local school is not for us. What can we do?
  • We weren’t educated here. How can we make the system work for us?
  • We need help with fees.
  • Our daughter needs exceptional pastoral care.
  • Our children are very bright. We want the best possible school.
  • Our son has special needs. Where will he be understood and supported?
  • We want an outstanding state school with good sports.
  • My daughter has been bullied. The school is not taking it seriously. Can you help?

We find solutions to these and many other questions every day.

How can we help?

Our service is a personal one-to-one service.You tell us what you want and we tell you how we can help. And then we do! Our education consultants are our most experienced writers. They have visited countless schools. All are parents. You will have your own personal consultant who has the benefit of the combined experience and expertise of the entire team to draw on. All our consultants work as hard for the children of their clients as they do for their own.

NB Important : Unlike education "agents" we take no fee from any school we recommend to you. This means we consider a huge range of schools for you - not just those that pay us to be recommended. Schools we find for you are based solely on what you tell us you want for your child.

NB We have expert consultants who can help you in a number of languages. Please advise us if you need to speak in your own language.

We offer a huge range of additional services. For more information see examples of how we can help.

So what should I do?

Call 0203 286 6824 or +44 203 286 6824 from overseas

or email:

What information should I include?

  • your contact details
  • your child’s name and yours
  • his/her/their date(s) of birth
  • your preferred location eg west London, near an airport etc
  • essential information about what matters most to you eg sports, a special educational need, good academics

How Does it Work?

Our administrator will take your call or answer your email. In consultation with the Director of the service, she will allocate the consultant best qualified to assist you. You will then be put in touch with your consultant direct.

Consultations are mainly carried out over the phone. However, our education consultants are always happy to meet you, if possible. Urgent enquiries are dealt with urgently. During office hours we can find an consultant to speak with you within a couple of hours if necessary.

Why are our services not free?

We’d love to help you for nothing. But our consultants are highly knowledgeable, experienced professionals who work one-to-one with you and give you the benefit of not just their own expertise but that of the whole Good Schools Guide team – along with the unique collection of data and information that is exclusive to The Good Schools Guide and which is constantly updated. We work hard for you and often give well over the odds. Our rates are extremely competitive.

What parents say

We think often of how much we appreciate your help and advice. We never could have found this on our own. Dr DK

Anyway, that’s the conclusion of our trip. I want to thank you very much for your kindness and professionalism. You have been very helpful, professional, active and kind. We were very impressed. Mr EM

Thrilled with grammar school place

We want to thank you for your support, assistance and cooperation throughout the appeal period for our son and a successful outcome with admission into one of Kent’s best and much sought after grammar schools.

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

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

Great schools list…

Thanks so much again for your great schools list. Certainly focuses the mind seeing those options!!! Exactly what we wanted it to do. The idea is to make sure we are not missing any tricks out there.

Wonderfully insightful consultation…

Thanks for a wonderfully insightful consultation. Mrs AB
