SIX Proven Steps to Get into the Best Fit International School

  1. Confirm your Criteria

Too often, parents forget what they want and feel that they need to settle for something else. If you take time to confirm your criteria at the start, you’ll be more likely to stick to what fits.

  1. Clarify your Child’s Ability

You want to be as certain as possible that, once you submit an application and your child is invited for an assessment, your child will pass. To get that far and then get a ‘No’ can be devastating.

  1. Compile your Smart Shortlist

Once you are clear on your criteria AND your child’s ability, you are ready to research which schools fit and which ones are likely to have space when you need it.

  1. Check with the Schools

You’ll want to be sure you understand the admissions and assessment process completely ofor the schools you’re interested in. If you’re applying for a year without additional places, you’ll want to ascertain your child’s chances too.

  1. Complete the Application

This should be the easy bit! Submitting a complete and correct application is not always as straightfoward as it may seem, especially when essay questions are required. Ensure your application is as strong as it can be.

  1. Confidently prepare for Assessment

A little preparation goes a long way. NOT lots of tutoring, but some targeted practice where it’s needed so that your child feels confident on the day and you know you’ve done all you can.


These SIX steps are included in our signature program - Successful School Admissions - in our ‘Finding the Fit’ Formula, our proven process. This is how we eliminate 80% of the risk and apply to just THREE schools to get ONE offer.
