School Placement Consultant

Philippa has a wealth of experience in education, as a teacher and senior leader, at boarding prep,
co-educational and single sex schools, in and out of London and latterly for the last 13 years as
head at Eaton House the Manor Pre-Prep and Bassett House School.


One aspect of her role as head that she particularly enjoyed was working with parents and school
admissions departments to find the best school for each child and she is keen to put her
knowledge and experience in educational consultancy to good use. She has kept in touch with
many parents and children from Eaton House and Bassett House and it is always gratifying to
hear how children have flourished in the right educational environment which she has helped
them to find.


Philippa is a consultant with the Independent Association of Preparatory Schools and has a wide
network of heads as colleagues and friends. She has also recently completed a Level 7 Executive

In her spare time Philippa likes to spend time with her two grown up children, a bubbly young
granddaughter and three lively chocolate Labradors.


With her up to date knowledge and expertise of the British educational system, Philippa is the
ideal person to help you with your school search to find the best school for your child.
