Around ninety-four percent of children in the UK attend state, government-funded school - free to parents.
The UK has a confusing variety of schools to choose from.
In the UK we consider all 2000+ private schools - full boarding, flexi boarding, day and
homestay, plus state schools covering children aged 3 to 18.
If you are based in Asia and looking to take advantage of fully funded state school in the UK, we can help you with your school search.
Our consultants are experts in navigating local authorities and their procedures, as well as appeals.
We understand catchment areas, the common application form (CAF),how to handle oversubscriptions, all based on legislation, notably the School Standards and Framework Act 1998.
We are specialists with searching for in-year places and places for families relocating into the UK without the usual evidence (ie a fixed residence).
