School search service
We can guide you to the right schools for your child's needs right across mainland UK. We can winkle out all options for you - often advising clients to look at both mainstream and specialist options. We have detailed knowledge of both state and independent schools offering both day and boarding places.
Whole family school planning
We have lots of experience in finding places for families where one child has additional learning needs, and the siblings require a different school environment. If you are thinking of relocating to find the right school, or are forward planning for your young family, we can help you to find a set of schools which will work best for each of your children within a manageable school run.
At a crisis point with your school? Despairing at getting the right SEN support in school? Wondering whether you should move your child to a different school? Confused about EHCPs, and how to get one?
We can provide phone/Skype/FaceTime consultations at short notice.
Meetings in person
You may have just received a shock diagnosis and need to talk through the implications for schooling, or have a complex situation to unravel, and would prefer a face to face meeting. These can be held at a location of your choosing (meetings outside of London may be subject to travel costs).
Many international clients come to us because there are no suitable school options in their home country, or because they are relocating for a job move. As well as identifying schools in suitable geographic areas for those newly moving to, or returning to the UK, we can advise on specialist schools which can provide residential places and sponsored visas for children whose parents will remain overseas.
How our school search service works
Troubleshooting calls/meetings in person:
Contact us with brief details of your child(ren) and your situation. We will advise on the likely time needed for any report reading/individual research beforehand, and for a consultation, and will provide a quote for the service.
School search service:
This service begins with a meeting in person or via Skype/FaceTime if more convenient. We will answer any general queries you have, and gather from you details about your child(ren), and advise whether any further reports/assessments would be advisable before we begin work. Following the meeting we will provide you with a suggested working brief and a quotation for the service.
Initial consultations by Skype/FaceTime are priced at £150 for one hour (meetings in person are £250 for up to 90 minutes; consultations away from London may incur travel charges). You are under no obligation and need only upgrade to the full school search service once you are entirely happy with the proposed service.
We will then research suitable schools in your chosen areas, liaise with them to gather further detailed information, provide you with a shortlist of recommended schools to visit, and assist with setting up visits. We remain on hand throughout the service for any questions you have, for post-visit discussions, and to help you reach a decision on the best school for your child.
