School Placement

Finding the right school for your child can be both daunting and challenging for any parent as the competition can appear alarming. Whether you are moving to London from overseas or are a local looking for guidance, IW Schooling Consultants can help. Our aim is to take the pressure off parents by supporting them through this intimidating process.

We understand that every child is an individual who needs the right environment to achieve their personal best. Whilst every child needs to be encouraged and stimulated academically, the pastoral care a school offers plays just as crucial a role in a child’s education. Our range of services are all adapted to suit our clients individual needs. We work closely with both parents and their children to ensure we give the best advice possible.


For many parents, a consultation with an expert is a fantastic way to gain clarity of mind quickly and affordably. If you have already started your search and have found yourself feeling overwhelmed, or are right at the start of the process and confused by the British School system, a consultation with one of our experts is a great place to start. We are happy to come to your home, or conduct the consultation over Skype. During the consultation we will discuss potential schools with you, compare and contrast strengths and weaknesses of those schools in relation to your child’s needs, and recommend next steps.

School Search

A school search is appropriate for parents who are at the start of their search, want expert advice on the schools in their area that will best suit their child’s needs, but who are happy to then manage the application process themselves. We will have a detailed discussion with you to determine the criteria that are important for you, and then put together a report of schools that fit these criteria. We only include schools that we believe are suitable and will best suit your child.

School search and placement

Our school placement service is for parents who would also like the administrative process taken off their hands. It takes the pressure off parents and allows them to concentrate soley on what is right for their child and the family as a whole. We provide support to parents from the beginning of their search to the point at which your child is settled in their new school. We will recommend appropriate schools, arrange visits to Open Days and are readily available to accompany you on tours to ensure that you get the most out of your visit. Following this we will register your child on your behalf and will continue to work closely with you until your child is happy and settled at their new school.

Please call us today to discuss your needs and determine which of our services is right for you.
