The Good Schools Guide review of Osborne Cawkwell Educational Consultants

Run by Lucy Cawkwell from glass-fronted, snazzy Aldwych-based office. They have one large administration space, with a smaller sun-lit room at the side, which is used for meeting clients, interviewing tutors and lessons. Lucy has been involved in tutoring for 25 years; with her works Shirley, (13 years' teaching experience, at OC for 10 years, degree in English and has a certificate in Counselling Skills), Rianne who, says Lucy, 'has several years of teaching and working with schools under her belt,' and Holly (with Lucy for 4 years and has a PGCE in Secondary Art and Design). Then there’s Maciej (pronounced ‘ma-chay’), in charge of invoicing and accounts. The two newest recruits, both of whom joined in 2015, are Dan, a consultant who supports clients and tutors and Grace who looks after office admin and answers the phone.

  • 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.
