Here at DE we specialise with helping young people and their families to navigate the path to successful admission into the UK’s leading schools.
We understand how vitally important a good education is and we are here to help you secure the best education for your children.
The United Kingdom is home to some of the world’s leading secondary schools. British are sought after because of their ability to combine a commitment to academic excellence with a commitment to nurturing young people that possess the critical thinking skills to excel in the modern world.
Gaining admission however is about much more than just passing an entrance exam or being able to pay the fees, schools of this calibre are looking for committed young people with the drive and resilience to make impactful contributions to school life.
What we do best
Over the last 15 years we have helped many young people gain admission into some of the country’s most prestigious schools. We have done this by working with young people and their families to develop their skills across the board – academic, extra-curricular, oracy, reasoning and critical thinking. In this way our students present to schools as well-rounded and engaged young people with the academic and interpersonal skills necessary to make meaningful contributions to school life.
We will help you to:
- Research and propose suitable schools in line with your requirements as to location, fees, curriculum and prestige.
- Design and implement a bespoke Admissions Strategy that will include private academic tuition, guidance on the development on non-academic skills sets, oracy and interview practice.
- Provide support with the application and interview process including organising tours, mock exams and mock interviews.
“We’ve had a DE tutor for a few months now and she’s fantastic! She’s organised, patient, thorough and she’s not afraid to tell us when our son’s slacking on his work.”
Our Particular Expertise
We have an unparalleled knowledge of UK independent and grammar schools and are continually fostering relationships with leading figures in these schools. Not only are we well-versed in the academic standards at the schools but we have taken the time to gain an understanding of the wider culture of each school – for example, what is its ethos in relation to the development of children who are inquisitive or critical, ambitious or driven by social issues, involved in their community or entrepreneurial.
By working with us you will be able to tap into these invaluable networks and gain valuable insight into the admissions process.
The first step is to book an Admissions Consultation with us during which we will find out more about your children and your education goals for them. Based on this we will produce a thorough report including an academic evaluation of your child and our recommendation as to next steps in terms of school selection and starting the application process based on your criteria.
If you would like us to help you on this journey, please contact us to get an Admissions Consultation booked in.
