Over the years, our team of experienced education consultants has supported 100’s of families with making the important future school decision. We have a range of education consultancy services to support you and your child with building their confidence for the 11+ pre-test or entry assessment, and interview process. Choosing the best school for your child and achieving a place offer is the outcome we are aiming for.

Relationships with British prep schools

We highly value our relationships with many British prep schools. They do an excellent job of steering you in the right future school direction, via their strong relationships with private boarding schools. This is a great way to start your initial research and arrange some visits to potential schools to get a feel for the atmosphere and ethos. However, the reassurance of an independent perspective is often what parents feel is missing. That’s where we come in.


For British expats or international parents overseas, it can be confusing to research choosing the best school for your child for many parents living overseas. We can help navigate the 11+ or 13+ pre-tests, entry assessments and interview process for private boarding schools without advice and support from your current school.


We understand you are looking for reassurance you are not missing out on any boarding school options. We help parents to focus on all the factors that will make their child happy and hence achieve their true potential. We steer parents towards choosing the best school for their child, which we feel is perfect for them as an individual.
