Debrett’s Education team has extensive knowledge of Independent Schools in the UK and their different curriculums and the expertise to help you find the best school for your child. Founding Partner Sioban O’Connor has over 30 years of experience in UK Independent Schools and can also honestly claim that she has been involved in Independent Education for most of her life and from all angles; as a pupil, teacher, Deputy Head, Headteacher and parent. She and her team are committed to and passionate about supporting families and young people find the best fit school.
As former teachers, school leaders and parents the team have seen at first hand the transformative power of a great education. They recognise that every child is different and what is right for one, may not be right for another, sometimes even in the same family. It is vitally important that you are equipped to make the right choice and to understand which school will be the best fit for your child. If you are thinking about a UK Independent school for your child, Debrett’s can help you decide which school will be the place where your child can get the best possible foundation, not only academically but also socially and emotionally, for whatever their future has in store for them.
Where Debrett’s believe they differ from their competitors is that first and foremost, they work for families and not for the schools. They don’t limit the number of schools that they approach, nor do they have agency agreements with schools. They do however, have great relationships with schools and find that because of their background experience, Heads and Admissions Departments appreciate that they understand the way in which schools work, what the standards are and therefore when they approach them, the schools know that they have really thought about the fit.
Your initial enquiry is completely free of charge, and Debrett’s are always happy to try to answer any questions you may have no matter what stage of the process you are. They will give you as much advice and guidance as possible for your particular circumstances, as well as tell you more about who they are and how they might be able to help you.
For over 250 years, the Debrett’s name has been synonymous with charting and guiding generations through the minefield of life’s complex traditions, behaviours, rites of passage and social and business etiquette, and is the ‘go to’ reference for anyone who wants to know just how things should be done. Similarly, the UK Independent or Private school system, with its rich cultural diversity and blend of long-standing traditions, excellent teaching and state of the art facilities, ranks as one of the best in the world.
