“Jimmy knows his business. He made us think about placing our daughter in the right school, not just the school we wanted her to go to. She starts in September at a school we would not necessarily have thought about – she is going to love it there and we are very pleased with the work done by The English Education.” 
Mr C – London, father of teenage girl, moving schools for Sixth Form.

“I am very pleased with the way that school choices have worked out for my children, having been supported by The English Education. Worth every penny, as it saves tons of time on research, contacts and basic understanding of the whole system. It is literally impossible to make an educated decision without professional help – and this is what Jimmy is best at.”
