SCHOOLS ADVISORY

SCHOOLS ADVISORY SERVICES TAILORED TO YOUR FAMILY 

We take a great deal of care and pride in the schools advisory services we offer. Every family and student has different needs, so our ability to listen and respond, with empathy and expertise, is at the heart of what we do.

Some families seek our guidance on the right questions to ask when selecting a school or university; while others want us to take over the time, stress and cost of contacting multiple schools, and oversee the full process. Whatever your needs, we’d be delighted to show you how we can help.

BOARDING SCHOOLS

We have the knowledge, experience and networks to help you select and secure a place at the best school for your child, whether it's Hong Kong, the UK or North America.

COLLEGES & COURSES

We offer practical guidance on shortlisting the right universities, colleges and courses, and can advise on 2018 applications in the UK, Europe and North America.

OXBRIDGE ENTRANCE

Our Oxbridge Advisor, David Hargreaves, is a leading authority in his field. He recommends that potential candidates begin their Oxbridge prep from 15 years old.

International Schools Advice

With more than 5,000 private schools in the UK, Europe and North America, finding the right environment for your child can be daunting. We work closely with each family to identify the best schools and to guide you through the admissions and settling in process.

It is important to note that our advice is based solely on the well-being of the student. We are not affiliated with any individual schools, so our advice is based solely on the best interest of the student and family, not any fees or commission paid by a specific school.
