As a Director and hence senior member of the team, Claire is the first point of contact for all parents who wish to enquire about our services. Her extensive experience in education, knowledge of the expertise within our consultancy team, alongside her friendly approachable style make her a firm favourite with parents and children alike.
Her caring, supportive nature means parents find her to be a reassuring listening ear, particularly when facing tough decisions regarding a child’s learning needs or when school is not going so well.
She oversees senior school registrations on behalf of our clients, including working with many top-ranked schools such as Eton, Harrow, Oundle, Sevenoaks, Benenden, Downe House, to mention only a few. Her in-depth knowledge of the entry procedures is second to none, meaning she loves to assist parents on their school transition journey. Her friendly approachable manner means she has built strong and valued working relationships with many schools over the years, building a contact book that she regularly uses to support the country-wide school choice ambitions of our clients.
Claire particularly enjoys helping children to prepare for interviews and important exams. She works closely with students on a one-to-one basis and believes that the key to a successful interview is recognising your strengths, as well as feeling confident to talk about all you have to offer.
Claire loves working with children to improve their confidence, and helping them see where they shine. Her calm, reassuring approach to the school selection process is particularly valued by parents whose children need a school which can offer specialist support for a specific learning need.
