Some wonderful feedback from a client who moved from the US to London
Both girls had really good years last year and this year is off to a great start too. I wanted to thank you again for your all of your help with finding a school for them. The school seems to be a really good fit and they are both thriving. Teagan is thrilled she is a Prefict, in Chamber Choir and starting cello lessons. She also loves all the new sports she’s been introduced to here – taking fencing lessons, went to cricket camp this summer, just to name a few. Rylan is a Librarian, taking violin and singing lessons, has made huge improvements in swimming and just started fencing as well.
So, thank you! If the girls were not happy in school, then this move would be really hard. Thanks to you, they are happy and I am happy! Actually, the only one that’s not a fan of our move seems to be the dog.
State secondary schools applications close on the 31st October 2019 for September 2020 onwards.
Many schools – especially academies and free schools – allow some pupils entrance based on aptitude, often in the arts or music – accompanied by a reference from their current school.
There does seem to be some leeway here for schools to cherry-pick students in a non-transparent way – based on subjective artistic judgement and a confidential report in to a student’s abilities.
Very kind feedback from an Australian client who has moved to Manchester.
Two great pieces of client feedback this week:
From an American client – “Thank you for all your assistance. With a huge move like this, it was so helpful and we greatly appreciate it!”
And from an Australian family – “We very much appreciate your help and expertise. You have made our job of finding a school significantly easier.”
