The education market in London is highly competitive, and the local school system can be tricky to navigate for families who have recently arrived in the UK. Most parents do their own research on the available schools in London or elsewhere in the UK, but some opt to take the advice of an education consultant. These professionals have expert knowledge of the local and international schools that may be suitable for each child.

The best education consultants in London will often have built strong relationships with the headteachers and admissions team at the top schools. They may be able to help expat children jump the waiting lists, and are able to advise on exam preparation and school interviews.
