There are several types of consultations on offer as listed below:
All consultations are tailored to individual families and provide the necessary guidance and advice parents need in order to make informed decisions about their children’s education. Advice is provided on both state and independent schools (be it primary or secondary or a mix).

Face to Face Consultations or Online Consultations via Skype/Zoom etc.
This is a 2 hour consultation
The face to face discussion is available as a physical meeting or via skype, face time, zoom or other video conferencing facility that the client is comfortable with. This service is used by both International clients and clients living in the UK.
It is usually for parents who want a longer more detailed advice about the system, school options, what the different entry routes are, want to form educational plans and want advice on primary and/or secondary options and plan for examinations among other topics. It can, if required, also include a comprehensive overview of the school system, entry criteria and entrance assessments.
Online consultation via Skype/Zoom etc.
This is a 1 hour consultation
This option is open to parents who have several specific questions or want a brief discussion on school options and entry criteria. It is essentially a mix between the face to face consultation and the telephone consultation but again, can be used by parents in a way that best suits their individual/unique needs.
This is a 30 minute consultation
The telephone consultation generally includes (but is not limited to) parents who need guidance on specific issues, are trying to decide between two or more offers from schools or have a particular and urgent need. Also used by parents to satisfy a pressing/urgent query prior to a deadline. Parents also use the telephone consultation as a precursor to a face to face consultation or to discuss a specific educational need, development tracker or school test results.
Any time over the 30 minutes is charged at a pro rated amount rounded to 10 minute segments.
