Our Education Consultants

We’re here to help you find the best school for your child

Choosing a school is a big decision for any parent. At School Guide, our approachable, professional, highly experienced Education Consultants are here to help.

Whether you are deciding on the next step in your child's education, moving home or relocating from overseas, our expert guidance is just a phone call away.

We help parents find the best private or state school for their child, easing the process of making one of the most important decisions of family life.

Unlike many consultancy services, we never take a fee from any school we recommend and this allows us to consider a huge range of schools and remain completely independent. Nor do we use our Classic Consultation as a sales call to encourage you to purchase more help. We are solution-focused and understand the financial pressures on parents.

We offer two straight-forward packages with transparent booking fees and no hidden extras.

Our School Guide Packages

Classic Consultation includes a pre-call assessment, 50-minute call to help parents narrow down options on schools and a School Guide Action Plan delivered straight to your Inbox to complete the consultation.

Parents Helpline was launched due to popular demand. Many parents told us they often felt confused about aspects of their child's schooling and wished there was way to quickly and easily access friendly expert advice on a key school question or problem. So we now offer our 30-minute 'ask us anything' call. Insight and experience is just a short phone call away.

School Guide Bespoke School Placement is suitable for those families looking for more in-depth help and guidance over several weeks or months. Choosing and applying for schools can be time consuming and stressful. Our experts help navigate the whole process – and can speak to schools and submit forms on your behalf. A more in-depth package is ideal for those moving home or relocating from overseas and may have multiple children to place in schools. We warmly invite you to contact [email protected] or call 0117 318 1530 to discuss your personal requirements and discover if our bespoke service is right for you.

“I felt very stuck on which school was best for my son, and it became an all-consuming and quite overwhelming process. School Guide helped me take step back and see things very clearly.
Following the 1-hour call, I had the confidence to make a decision.”

Annie E, Chichester

“​I'm finally out of the mist​!​ Your advice was so clear and so helpful. I received more useful information in 5 minutes conversation with you than I had managed to gather myself over months of research.​”

Celia T, Oswestry
