Education Advisers Ltd.
We have been offering families from around the world impartial advice on British education for over 12 years.
They run a range of websites offering free information on various stages and specialties in the British education system: Prep schools, summer schools, dyslexic schools, sixth form, and university advice. Their most famous site is best-schools.co.uk, where they publish the most accurate and comprehensive results tables for the UK’s top private senior schools.
All EA’s staff have a background in teaching or school management both in the UK and overseas, and every member of the team enjoys visiting schools and consulting families on school choices.
Education Advisers is delighted to collaborate with the SchoolAdvice network, as it now means they can offer families further expertise when selecting schools in North America, Hong Kong, mainland Europe and beyond.
