About Us

Educational advice and expert private tuition

INSPIRING EXCELLENCE AND ACHIEVING RESULTS

A relentless commitment to the success of children and young people

For over 30 years, Lionheart has provided completely tailored educational advice and support to children and young people throughout the world, from tuition to bespoke schooling to revision courses, educational consultancy and advice. During this time, we have built a reputation for excellence based upon outstanding results.

We aim to make learning as easy and interesting as possible, to give your child the confidence to ask questions, and ultimately, to succeed. We do this through working with brilliant tutors with whom children can identify, and consultants who can guide your child through the most complex of educational issues. Some of the world’s most prominent and influential families have retained our services because of our highly tailored approach, our fantastic team of tutors and our relentless commitment to children and young people.

Our tutors are proud of their ability to inspire a newfound passion for learning. With this comes confidence, and with confidence comes success.

OUR VALUES

Since Lionheart Education was established in 1989, one thing has never changed: putting children at the centre of everything we do.

Excellence

Over the past 30 years, we have built a reputation for excellence based upon outstanding results. Some families come back to us year after year because we provide excellent services, thanks to our highly dedicated staff and our brilliant team of tutors, who will help your child succeed no matter what journey they have been on prior to Lionheart.

Confidence

We aim to make learning as easy and interesting as possible, to give your child the confidence to ask questions, and ultimately, to succeed. We place as much emphasis on attaining academic excellence as we do in acquiring the necessary social skills to grow into a confident adult. We do this through working with brilliant, highly-qualified and knowledgeable tutors, with whom children can identify and learn an array of academic and non-academic skills.

Care

We only work with people who understand how complex a child’s needs can be, and are patient, caring and understanding at all times. We aim for every contact you and your child have with us to be an extremely positive and reassuring experience, and there is always someone you can speak to at Lionheart should you have any questions or worries.

Integrity

Integrity is at the core of everything we do, and this is why so many educational and medical professionals refer children to us. We will always be honest in our advice, and only suggest solutions that we think are in your child’s best interests. We pride ourselves on being the people you can turn to when you need professional, discreet and trustworthy advice.

Embracing our differences

Lionheart regularly works with young people
who have neurodiverse cognitive profiles. Our unique approach often involves
a multi-disciplinary team including teachers,
tutors, SENCOs, psychotherapists, psychologists and psychiatrists. By building a holistic profile, considering psychological traits and mental health, Lionheart’s team is able to create an evolving educational pathway for your child to thrive thanks to a deeper recognition of
their cognitive abilities.

A fully bespoke approach

At Lionheart, everything we do is tailored to each individual student. We achieve this by spending a large amount of time speaking to children and their families, so we understand what their needs are. We only recommend educational options that we know are likely to work, based on thorough assessments, and a very extensive experience of the UK education system as well as child and adolescent mental health.

Jeremie has called me to say his government politics teacher was the best on the planet. Naturally I extend our thanks for whatever it is that caused that reaction.

We thought you might like to know that in spite of being nowhere on any list, thanks to your input and the regular updates from Tom’s headmaster he was offered a place at Eton in September which we have accepted! Thank you so much for your positive words and encouragement.

Kate D., Educational Consultancy client

Dear Deborah, Many thanks for getting us in contact with Claire. She is a real treasure, always punctual and very knowledgeable in how to get the best out of a 6 year old boy. Learning and making it fun at the same time!

Thank you for organising Andreas’ tutor! Chris was great and I have a son who now thinks maths is absolutely brilliant, having thought trigonometry was a real pain…!
