Choice of Schools in Kent, Sussex and the Surrey borders

'Choice of schools' is right at the top of our clients priority lists. Demand for the most popular schools, can make it harder to secure prep school places for several siblings. With our first hand experience and good working relationships with school registrars, we can provide impartial, informal advice or offer introductions to local parents or registrars as you consider your schooling options.

Just like commuting needs, understanding your specific schooling requirements is crucial as we help you to frame your property search brief. The school run is a key factor as we identify the right house in the right location. Kent, Sussex and the Surrey borders benefit from a superb range of high achieving state and private schools. The Kent Grammar system is an important consideration for some.

For those requiring a specialist, we can recommend experienced education consultants who can discuss any complicated admissions processes, help to identify suitable schools for each child and provide practical assistance to help secure places.

School Hunters, an educational consultancy co-founded by Claire Holtom and Jessica Macrory, provides an informed and experienced sounding board and, if you’d like, a bespoke report within a matter of weeks presenting you with their expert view on the schools they feel will best suit your child and family.

"I would wholeheartedly recommend the School Hunters’ service to anyone looking to navigate the jungle of school selection."
