Consultations enable us to find the perfect school for your child

In order to make sure all our work is bespoke for your child and to find a nursery or school that suits you perfectly, our consultations follow a rigorous and comprehensive formula that is also adapted to your needs.

After a pre-consultation interview, a selected expert consultants will visit the family and talk to both the child and the parents or guardians.

We can lead you from the start of the process through to admission at your perfect school, ensuring you have all the options available to you.

Please see below for a more thorough breakdown of these steps.

The Consultancy Process

1

Pre-Consultancy Questionnaire

We undertake a pre-consultancy interview with the family, detailing their specific requirements. This enables our consultants to think about suitable Nurseries or Schools for the student.

2

Standardised Test

We recommend a standardised test, especially if applying from overseas, to gauge the needs of individual students, and to ensure that they are considering the best possible Schools to meet their requirements.

3

Visit from the consultant

One of our consultants would then visit the family, spending around one hour talking with the parents/guardians and student. This meeting is of vital importance as it should work to give us a clear idea of the specific needs of the family and student in question, and will inform the guidance subsequently provided.

4

Shortlist of Schools

Informed by the test results, parental aspirations and student aspirations, a shortlist of 3-4 schools will be produced and meetings with the schools will be set-up.

5

Visit School(s)

One of our consultants would then be happy to discuss each school in more detail after your visit and answer any questions you might have.

6

Preferred Nurseries and Schools

The consultant will have a final meeting with the family to review the options and select the top three choices.

7

Enrolment

Ivy Education will support the final stages of enrolment and securing a place.
