PRIVATE SCHOOL CONSULTANTS
Our private school consultants have helped hundreds of families find the right prep school and senior school for their children. Whether you are planning well in advance or need urgent advice, our education consultants can secure your child a place at the best school for them. If you’re new to the British independent school system, a school consultant can guide you through the whole process from drawing up a list to arranging visits and applications. Equally some families come to us with a list already, wanting to know whether they’re missing a hidden gem – or a school on the rise – that would suit their child even better. Either way, at Simply Learning Tuition we make a point of knowing the unique characteristics of each school. So you’re never making choices based on a school’s reputation alone.
Nathaniel McCullagh, SLT's Founder and Director explains how we help parents choose and apply to the school that is best for their child.
Independent Preparatory School Consultants
When it comes to prep schools, one of the big challenges is the choice. Some are selective, some aren’t. Some are academic while others suit mixed abilities. Some are natural feeders into senior schools you might have in mind. Then there’s the question of day versus boarding and mixed versus single-sex.
At Simply Learning Tuition we pride ourselves on being particularly good with prep schools. Our prep school consultants know the choices available to you inside out. Our strong connections with prep school heads and registrars comes from a healthy mutual respect, and we speak with heads directly, who often ask for our input during their selection process.
Senior School Consultants
Senior school is where your child goes from being a child to an adult. As well as their big exams, these are the years your child will get stuck into sports or hobbies that might actually become some of their core talents. Pastoral care also becomes particularly important during these teenage years. Our award-winning senior school consultants have helped hundreds of families through the process of choosing and applying for senior schools at both 11+ and 13+.
We can help from the start, drawing up a recommended list, organising visits and managing the registration process for you. For other families, their SLT senior school consultant is as a trusted sounding board – providing up-to-date insight on the schools they’re thinking about, and making sure they haven’t missed any ‘perfect fits’ off the list.
We advise parents regardless of whether their child is working with a tutor or not. If you’d like more information about our school-placement service, please do get in touch.
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.”
"Simply Learning Tuition have provided me with hands-on, proactive and compassionate guidance since I first used their services in 2014, to find a Prep School place for my daughter. Seeing as I wasn’t very familiar with the regulations and rules they provided tremendous help finding home tutors until my daughter settled in a school, not to mention attending meetings with me and making the transition very easy to cope with for both myself and daughter. I am not British and was not educated in the UK and so having an advisor on hand to talk me through each stage of the process was invaluable."
Ms O, Knightsbridge, Prep-School Placement
"It is all now achieved thanks to your continuous efforts and support and on behalf of the family and myself really appreciate it." SLT placed two brothers in a North London Prep School by identifying the family's needs and recommending the best school for them, then arranging online interviews and assessments for the boys (who lived in the Middle East).
Eli, Family PA, Prep-School Placement
"Natasha was very supportive, solid and thorough in her teaching and really helped our son to get a grasp of the missing parts of the jigsaw. We are very grateful to her".
Mrs. H, 11+ Preparation
"Thanks to Simply Learning’s kind and attentive assistance, Ella has managed to secure a Year 8 chance space at Francis Holland."
Mr B, Washington D.C., Senior School Placement
