Whether you are relocating to the UK, preparing for school entrance or want to pinpoint gaps in knowledge or hone exam technique, our assessments will set you on the path to successful school applications.

So how does the consultancy work?

We offer assessments in English, maths and reasoning because these are the subjects most schools test children for when considering a place for them. They also tend to be the most challenging areas for children coming from different countries with different educational systems.

For 7+ and over, we use entrance tests previously set by a range of academically selective independent schools. The tests chosen are appropriate to the age and school stage of each child. These are set and marked by our in-house team of subject experts. Our assessments are usually done remotely, but we are also happy to do face-to-face assessments where and when possible and would recommend the latter for younger children.

Tier One

This service is offered to the parents of our existing clients ie those who have engaged one of our consultants to research possible schools for their children. Once the papers are marked, the assessor sends a brief report to the consultant to help gauge the best school for the child.

Costs: (inclusive of VAT)

  • in maths or English = £86

  • in maths and English = £138

  • in maths, English and reasoning = £180

Tier Two

This service is for clients who would like to have a detailed appraisal of their children’s aptitude in, primarily, English and maths – the two subjects most commonly tested by academically selective schools for entry at all levels. As many schools also test verbal and non-verbal reasoning at 11+ level, we also offer assessments of this.

Clients receive a detailed report on their child's performance in each paper they undertake plus suggestions and recommendations where appropriate.

Costs: (inclusive of VAT)

  • in maths and English = £396

  • in maths, English and reasoning = £486
