Fully managed school placement

Like many of our families, you may wish to benefit from our full school placement service.  We support you and your child through every stage of your important educational decision. This service is for families who require complete support throughout the school application process.  

Why Lumos School Placement Service?

Our School Placement Service is ideal for busy UK or international families, who prefer us to manage the entire school application process on their behalf. This includes arranging visits and organising interviews. We help to navigate the administrative process of finding a school for your child, while keeping you involved at the important decision-making phases. 

We have established links with many leading schools in the UK and overseas. These include boarding schools, London nurseries, day schools and international schools. Our expert school placement consultants help you pinpoint a school where your child will excel and be happy.

The perfect school for your child

Our child-focused approach ensures that we find the perfect match for your family. By listening to the needs of you and your child, we make sure that everyone is involved throughout the school placement process.

The School Placement Service includes:

Initial consultation

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

Schools’ shortlist

Following the initial consultation, we will prepare a shortlist of schools that will allow your child to thrive and excel.

School visits

We arrange special visits to several shortlisted schools. This allows us to introduce both you and your child to the school. With one of our school placement consultants accompanying you, we will be there to discuss initial impressions of the school’s culture, academic life and pastoral care.

Application, entrance and interview process

We assist with the application process to your chosen schools. This includes assistance with registration documents, as well as arrangements to sit entrance exams, such as the 7+, pre-test, 11+, 13+ (Common Entrance) and 16+. We can also provide private tuition to ensure that your child feels well-prepared and confident. 

Acceptance process

Once your school of choice confirms your child’s place, we manage the acceptance documentation. We will also assist with visa work, if required. If you are unsure about your final decision, our team will be there to support you. We will address your queries and share our own experiences of the schools you are considering.
