So how does the consultancy work?

Many families would like ongoing support and advice from a senior and experienced education consultant. They would like to navigate the entire admission process with their consultant along side, contacting schools on their behalf, arranging introductions and being on hand to answer questions and resolve decisions.

We offer a range of premier services tailor made to the needs of each family with a sliding scale of fees reflecting individual circumstances and the time involved in delivering the service.

For some families, the timescales for finding the best school for their child are tight and they need urgent advice and support throughout the process.

Some may have several children with different requirements, considering a range of different kinds of school including boarding, state, or grammar as well as day schools. They may also be keen to explore a wide geographical area and considering a mixture of urban and rural environments.

Our expert educational consultant will provide hands on support from the moment they start to work with you until your children have been placed in schools of your choice. They will introduce you to key personnel in the schools, liaise with them on your behalf, work to promote the strength of your application as well as providing advice about the assessments and interview process.

Our consultant, who will have been carefully chosen to match your family’s needs, will find out all about your requirements in an initial consultation. S/he will provide you with a report including a list of recommended schools depending on your particular circumstances. And after discussions with you by email, virtual meetings or telephone, our consultant will contact the schools on your behalf, arrange introductions and facilitate any meetings. Our education consultant will also be available to support and advise about applications and anything else that might arise throughout the admissions process. We can also introduce you to the best tutorial agencies that will most closely meet your needs. 

In order to the give you the best possible advice it may be necessary for your child to sit assessments in maths, English and reasoning. This could provide essential information for the consultant to suggest the right schools for your child and enable us to advise how your child can reach the expected level in key subjects to apply to a UK school. Assessments are charged at an additional fee based on the age of the child.

At an extra cost our consultant can also accompany you on school visits or visit on your behalf as well as arrange language assessments and any required translation services;

Still not sure? Why not call us to chat through whether it’s the best service for you. Or we might recommend that you meet with a consultant first, for a fee, to ask any questions and explain more about your requirements before deciding whether to take up the premier school consultancy.
