The Good Schools Guide review of Chelsea & Fulham Tutors
This agency was founded in 2013 by friends Clare Pelham and Alison Brunton who run a tight ship, aiming to find families the right tutor within 24 hours. ‘They couldn’t be more responsive if they tried!’ felt one parent. They are also applauded for their personal service: ‘I’ve used most of the big London agencies and this one is much better – the women who run it are caring, have kids who have been through it and takes a personal interest. Absolutely amazing.’
Clare, who has a BSc in engineering from Cornell University USA, started tutoring in 2004. Alison, who has a BSc in economics from LSE, ran a City headhunting business before managing an online business. The two of them hit it off and after Clare told Alison she couldn’t meet all the tutoring requests that were flooding in, they decided to set up an agency. ‘We started with the tutors we’d already hired for our own children.’

The Good Schools Guide Education Consultants offer assessments in English, maths and in reasoning. Most schools assess these subjects when considering a child for a place. This is especially important for children coming from different countries with different educational systems. But there can be many reasons for checking a child's progress in these basic skills.

Perhaps you suspect your child has some learning difficulty and you would like advice on what you should do. Or perhaps it is becoming clear that your child's current school is not working for him or her, and you need help to find a mainstream school which has better SEN provision, or to find a special school which will best cater for your child's area of need. Our SEN consultancy team advises on both special schools, and the mainstream schools with good SEN support, from reception through to the specialist colleges for 19+.

We examined the value-added from KS2 to GCSE for 2022 to see which state selective grammar schools added the most value to their offspring. A note of caution - the more highly selective a grammar school, the less scope there will be to add value.
Grammar schools are state-funded, academically selective senior schools. The education a child receives at grammar school is paid for by the state unlike at private schools which provide education for a fee. There are currently around 163 located in 36 English local authorities, with around 167,000 pupils between them. Northern Ireland has a further 67 grammar schools, but there are none in Wales or Scotland. A word of caution: there are private schools that have the word 'grammar' in their name but this is purely for historical reasons.
At specialist music, dance or performing arts schools, the arts aren't optional extras. They’re intrinsic to the school curriculum. Students are expected to fit in high level training and hours of practice alongside a full academic provision.
It's a lot to ask any child to take on, but for those with exceptional performing ability this kind of education can be transformative.
