We are able to recommend suitable schools and manage applications from the initial visit to accepting a place. We are able to assist parents during Open Days by advising and asking the key questions. This will ease the decision-making process and will lead to the most appropriate school being chosen for your child. This can be particularly helpful for students who have relocated to the U.K. We organise school visits, advise on entrance exams and, if required, are able to provide teaching materials and tutoring to prepare for these.
To understand what is best for the pupil or student, parents too are invited to the consultations. We review academic progress and then make recommendations about which schools would be most suitable. In addition to this, we advise on different academic options such as A Levels and the International Baccalaureate. We make recommendations about which GCSE, A Level or IB subjects should be studied in relation to university entrance. Our previous students who have successfully entered their first choice University are also available for a chat.
We read inspection reports and league table listings and check exam results by subject so we are aware of the relative subject strengths within the school. We talk to staff, listen to parents, and take note of staff changes. We regularly visit schools and are fully aware of their structure and their performance.
We have been offering our support to students who are home-schooled and they are able to benefit from all of the services we have available. The parents/guardians receive extensive material and guidance which aids their children at home.
Consultancy charges are £50 per hour (minimum booking time is for one hour)
