Education Consultant

As a former Senior Master at Papplewick School, Ascot, Jim has a deep understanding of the educational requirements of individual families and pupils.

He works in a highly personalised manner with his global client base to develop a pathway for the child, which is built around the individual needs of the child and family. He acts as a bridge between the top British independent schools and families who demand the very best education for their children.

He covers all school entry points, from nursery and prep-prep applications (4+) through to preparatory (7+ 8+) and senior school admissions (11+, 13+), as well as Sixth Form (16+). Beyond this he also has a team who can provide detailed assistance to candidates with University and US College applications.

His key services include:

  • School Placements in the UK and Switzerland (day and boarding)
  • Tutoring solutions and mentoring for all age groups
  • University and US College admissions
  • Academic Assessments



The School Placement service assists families with not only identifying good choices for their children but also sets up strategic plans to prepare them for all assessments and interviews. Jim and his team assess candidates to understand their current academic profile and then draw up a list of schools that will suit them. Once shortlisted Jim accompanies families on school visits, introducing them to the admissions teams and other senior figures at the schools.

Jim guides clients in how to approach schools to maximise their chances of achieving a successful entry offer to the school of choice.

He only works with a select few families; providing a highly specialised and bespoke service.
