How education consultants will find the best UK school for your child

April 1st 2016

We all dream of getting our child into a brilliant school.  

Because each child is different, however, choosing the right school isn’t as simple as picking the one with the best league table ranking. It’s all about working out where your child will really thrive.

This is where the guidance of global and overseas education consultants can be incredibly helpful; particularly if you’re an international family looking to enrol your child into a top UK school.

Read on to learn more about what School Search and Placement Consultants, such as ours at William Clarence, can do for you and your child.

5 ways that global and overseas education consultants will support you to find the best school for your child:

1.  Using their expert knowledge of top UK schools

If you don’t live in the UK, the chances are you won’t have a detailed knowledge of UK schools.  

An experienced school placement consultant can save you hours of late-night internet research by giving you the full lowdown on schools you’re considering – as well as ones you might not have heard of. They’ll also know things that won’t necessarily pop up on the official websites. 

2.  Working closely with you and your child

A good school placement consultant will meet with you and your family several times, building an idea of your child’s academic strengths, personality, ambitions and interests. Using this information, they can then draw up a list of UK schools that they think are most appropriate for your child. 

3.  Attending school visits on your behalf

When you live abroad it’s not always easy to get over to the UK, but if you do decide to visit your shortlisted schools, your consultant should offer to accompany you. Once there, he or she can help arrange meetings with staff members, or tours of particular areas of the school. 

4.  Arrange a private tutor

Once you have made a final decision, your consultant should be able to set up tailored private tuition, where your child is coached specifically for the application process of their chosen school, such as interview and exam preparation

5.  Handling the paperwork

If you live outside the UK, it can be tricky to make sure paperwork gets sent on time – particularly when you’re dealing with a time difference. A specialist UK school placement consultant will tackle the deadlines and application forms on your behalf, making the whole process a lot easier for you.
