Schools Placement Service


Helping you make the right choice.

Like many of our families, you may wish to benefit from our full schools placement service, where we support you and your child through every stage of your important decision on schooling.

With established links with Local Education Authorities (LEAs) and to many leading schools in the UK, including boarding schools, London day schools and international schools, we can help you to work through the numerous choices available and advise you as to which option will give you son or daughter the chance to excel and be happy.  We take time to advise on selection and admissions procedures and concentrate on finding the perfect match for your son or daughter.  Our approach always child focused and we listen carefully to your child’s feedback on a school to make sure that they are included in the process at every stage.

The School Placement Service includes:

Initial Consultation

We aim to learn about your child’s academic background and to assess his or her suitability for certain schools.  The consultation may take place in London, elsewhere in the UK or overseas.

Schools Shortlist

Following the initial consultation, we will prepare a shortlist of schools which we feel would give your son or daughter the opportunity to thrive and excel.

School  Visits

We can arrange special visits to several chosen schools to introduce both you and your child to the school.  One of our consultants will accompany you to discuss your initial impressions of the school’s culture, academic life and pastoral care.

Application, Entrance and Interview Process

We assist with applications to your chosen schools, including help with registration documents, arrangements for sitting of entrance exams and where necessary, private tuition to ensure your child is well-prepared.

Acceptance Process

Once your first choice school confirms your child’s place, we manage offer letters and additional visa work, if required.  If you are unsure about your final decision, we will be there to support you, listening to your impressions and sharing our own experiences of the schools you are considering.

Lumos is perfect for any parent wanting to trust someone with arranging their child’s education needs: every detail is taken care of.
