Dean Associates have been wonderful. They listened hard and quickly grasped what we were looking for and have helped us through the journey – finding schools with spaces, setting up appointments and facilitating the admissions process. We couldn’t be happier.

Trying to find a place in a good state school for our children had been a terrible experience before Dean Associates became involved. They helped us make sense of the endless red tape, worked out what we needed to do to maximise our chances and supported us through the appeals process. At each stage they have been positive and creative in helping us find solutions.

We have a nine year old daughter with cerebral palsy. Finding the right school was the most important part of our relocation. Dean Associates helped us understand what our choices would be and worked tirelessly with the council and local schools to identify a specialist school for our daughter. She is now happily settled. Thank you.

Our school in China couldn’t help our son with his university application. Dean Associates helped him identify and prioritise courses, improved his UCAS form and ensured that we only had to pay “home” rather than international fees.
