Senior School Consultants
Choosing the right school for your child is one of the most important decisions you will make as a parent. Our education consultants have helped families secure a place for their child at the best senior schools in the country – schools that are not only outstanding academically but which correspond to their child’s interests and ambitions. We offer a truly personal service, taking care to learn about your child and understand your family’s aspirations. This allows us to recommend schools where your child is most likely to flourish. Usually, this will be a London day school or major boarding school but we also love recommending less well-known, hidden gems.
When you have chosen the right school for your child we can then identify the steps required to secure a place and provide all the necessary support needed to achieve this. This can involve introducing a private tutor to help bolster core subjects or specific entrance exams, advice on selection criteria and preparing for interviews. We can also arrange a visit to the school and provide an introduction to the school’s Admission Team. This ensures the best possible impression is made. Our consultants are highly experienced and regularly visit the leading London day and country boarding schools so you can be confident that you will receive the very best advice and guidance.

We were delighted to win the Relocate Global award for, ‘Excellence in Education Consultancy 2019‘. In the words of the judges:
“This firm clearly brings a caring and compassionate perspective to its services, but combines this with technological efficiency and excellent people management practices – a very buttoned-down intelligent group of people with a bigger-picture awareness.”
Thanks to Simply Learning's kind and attentive assistance, Ella has managed to secure a year 8 chance vacancy space at Francis Holland. Katie the advisor was always available on the other end of the phone, offering both practical and moral support (!) in what is inevitably a very involved process. I will be looking forward to working with her again when preparing for my eldest's sixth form applications.

“We would like to extend our profound gratitude for the professionalism and care you deployed throughout our dealing with you. We are grateful for all you did to assist the family.”
Mr I, North London, guidance on daughter's senior schools placement, with additional support from a tutor
"Nathaniel and Katie helped us find one school that would take both of our daughters (aged 7 and 13). They arranged for school visits and then set up the assessments and interviews. It was really helpful that they had done all the homework, only showing us schools where we were able to get a place. Both girls are now very happy at their new UK school."
