School Placement


Deciding Which School Is Right


Over the course of many years, our consultants have developed strong relationships with the country’s best schools and universities. We understand the subtle nuances that make one school perfect for a particular child and another inappropriate. Traditional approaches to educational advice tend not to focus on the child’s perspective. For us, meeting and assessing the student is at the very core of the process.

Having visited hundreds of schools around the country, we have defined a broad selection of preparatory and senior schools, which offer excellence in a variety of ways. Alongside the more traditional choices such as Eton, St. Paul’s and Wycombe Abbey, we are able to recommend and make introductions at smaller schools, which offer an outstanding education for particular types of children. Some have extraordinary art departments or sports facilities. Others may cater brilliantly for children with Special Educational Needs or have an excellent track record at preparing students for specific universities such as Oxford and Cambridge. We are able to offer all the information that league tables fail to deliver and tailor our advice specifically for your child following an in depth assessment and discussion. That is why clients say we are outstanding at placing their children in the right school.

Ensuring your child gets a place


Gaining access to the upper echelons of the British independent education system is a competitive, complex and challenging process. We have worked hard to establish relationships with schools based on trust. Our approach is targeted, effective and entirely results driven.

We use a combination of contacts, experience and consistent data analysis to ensure that each child is fully prepared for whichever entrance procedure they are about to embark on. We carry out formal assessments where required and extensive exam and interview preparation.

"Choosing a school is one of the most important decisions you will make for your child. Get it right and you will have a happy, confident and fulfilled young person. Get it wrong and in some cases the reverse can be true."

Rupert Syme, Chairman and Head of Consultancy.
