SCHOOL FINDER SERVICES
RELOCATION? MOVING TO THE UK? OR SIMPLY PERPLEXED BY THE UK SYSTEM OF SCHOOLS AND NEED HELP TO MAKE THE RIGHT CHOICES? USE OUR SCHOOL FINDER SERVICES
We are here to help find the right schools for your children and then secure places for them in the midst of what can be a very competitive environment.
The ASIS team consists of former Headmasters and Headmistresses, plus teachers and school administrators, who have collectively been in the schools-business for over 100 years.
Headed up by David Boddy, formerly Chairman of the UK Society of Heads and Head of St James Senior School for Boys in London, the team knows how stressful and difficult it is – for the children as well as parents – to relocate.
The ASIS Senior Consultant is Suzie Oweiss. If you would like to be contacted please fill in the form to the right.
FREE INITIAL ADVISORY MEETING
Our first hour-long meeting, which is free of charge, will provide an overview of the UK educational landscape and allow us to explore some initial options. It is usually very valuable to have the child or children who are to be placed with you. For about 20 minutes, the ASIS Counsellor will want to hear from the children about their wishes.
The meeting will conclude with a short summary note of options to consider and an outline of how ASIS can help prepare for the next step. If you wish for ASIS to place your child in a UK school please see our Gold Service below.
Parents should bring with them to the initial meeting previous school reports and any other relevant data about the youngster’s academic, social, artistic and sporting achievements.
The meeting is usually conducted in our London recruitment office or via Skype if you and your children are outside of the UK.

COACHING, MENTORING AND TUTORING
Many of the top UK schools are highly competitive to get into. Children need to perform well in entrance tests and in subsequent interviews, usually with the Head Teacher or a senior Admissions Tutor.
ASIS provides coaching, mentoring and tutoring services. Our counsellors are familiar with many of the school admissions departments and can help settle and prepare the youngsters for what is to come. Such help often makes the difference between the offer of a place at a chosen school, or not.
We are available at our central London office in Regent Street W1 for consultations from 10am to 6pm during the working week. During school holidays, hours vary. An appointment is usually necessary to ensure the presence of a Counsellor. E-mail us or phone. We will get back to you as soon as possible.
