Our experience makes the difference
Your Family's Personal Representitive in Britain
Always here when you need us

Communication and ongoing contact with children, and between parents and the school, are essential.

 

We follow up with necessary paperwork, advice and additional academic support if required. We go to parents’ evenings, liaise between parents and teachers and provide regular progress reports about each child.

 

Our service will be particularly useful for parents who live abroad and are not confident in English. Our team can assist in a number of European languages, and will always ensure mutual understanding.

Rather than merely arranging placements for students, we take an interest in your child, getting to know their abilities and aspirations while building mutual trust.

 

As an independent consultancy, we work on your behalf, explaining the subtle differences between schools, guiding you towards the most suitable school for you and your child.

 

Throughout the process and during the time spent in Scotland, we continue helping parents and children any way we can.

Palmerston House Educational Services also goes the extra mile for parents.

We are able to find and arrange accommodation, airport pick-up, book tickets for shows and concerts, recommend restaurants and organise guided tours in and around the city, to make sure that you experience Scottish culture in full.

 

Do you have questions like these: Which schools are the best? How can we get our child in? What is the procedure?

 

It’s never too soon to ask. Please get in touch.

We will prepare a shortlist of possible schools and assemble a matrix of key points about each of them, as well as organising personal visits thereby making the process much simpler.

 

At Palmerston House Educational Services, we take pride in our individual

approach to your needs and your child’s education​

Placing Your Children At The Finest Schools

We work with some of the best schools in Scotland and our top priority is getting our clients – in most cases, their children – the best possible education in the UK. Whether you are looking for a private school placement, summer school or special language course, we are here to help your whole family.

 

We are also very specialised, focusing only on the Scotland’s elite schools, all of which are within an hour’s drive from
our office.

This makes us unique and particularly convenient, as it means we can deal with any issues that may arise very quickly, and our individual approach means that we personally support and help you and your child.

We Assist Families Every
Step of The Way

The British education system varies from that of other countries, while the language barrier can lead to poor communication and misunderstanding. Parents often require help in dealing with schools’ complex procedures and finding guardians.

 

Children regularly need assistance with preparing for entrance tests and interviews, and later require support settling into a new environment and integrating into life in the UK.

Our local knowledge and unique approach will provide you with the information you need to make an informed decision about your child’s private school education. 

We Offer All-encompassing Ongoing Support

We will guide you through the fantastic course options and school admission system. In addition, we can organise school or university visits, arrange a personal meeting with the school’s headmaster/administration, help with the application process, guardianship and provide interview or exam preparation, where necessary.

 

Our elite private schools are centres of excellence. Choosing the right school, and later university, will define your child’s future career path and can open up many opportunities, through improving social skills, building confidence and friendships and making contacts that last
a lifetime.
