Schools Advisory

We advise for entry into preparatory schools (8 to 12 years old) and senior boarding schools (13 to 18 years old). The main intake years are Year 7 (11+), Year 9 (13+) or Sixth Form (16+), although many schools consider entry into other years.

Our clients look to boarding schools for a variety of reasons and for different lengths of time. Singaporean parents may like the broad spectrum of academic subjects, range of activities and holistic approach at boarding schools in the UK. A French student may wish to board for a year in the UK and improve his English. An expatriate British family may wish their 11 year old child to have a consistent school environment. A Malaysian pupil may seek a two-year boarding experience or look at entering the British system prior to applying for a UK university course.

Mock Interviews

Interviews are integral to the admissions process and help both schools and prospective students decide whether there is a good fit.  These can range from formal academic interviews to casual chats. We can help familiarise you with what to expect and work through tips on how to improve interview technique and the art of conversation.
