  • Date of Birth of Child
What will you receive if you complete this form
  • When we receive a completed form from you, we will email you to make sure we have fully understood what you want to know, if anything is unclear.
  • We will also offer you a free online consultation to better understand what you and your family are looking for from a UK education provider.
  • Then we will confirm that the request for information has come from a parent/guardian, not a child (under 16). If this is unclear from the information provided, we will separately email the respondent and ask for a return email copying in a parent/guardian, or ask for added confirmation of the age of the respondent. If necessary, we will then verify the identity of the parent/guardian with a separate email requesting confirmation of this relationship before any further information is sought from the respondent and before any data is shared with any 3rd party (requested school/university). Also, all ongoing communications will be copied to the parent.
  • Following this, we will email the right person within the faculty office of the chosen University or Boarding school admissions department, you want to make contact with, and copy you on the email, so you can see your request has been actioned.
  • The chosen University or Boarding school will then seek your permission (EU regulations, relating to EU data subjects) to send you the information you have requested and will make you aware of their own data protection policies.
  • If you have given permission for the Boarding School or University to contact you (EU regulations, relating to EU data subjects) we will ensure you get a reply from the University or School of interest.
  • We will then follow up with you to make sure your questions have been answered and you feel able to move forwards with your planning. 
  • We are happy to provide any further assistance we can offer at any stage of your application process to any UK educational institution featured on the site.

    A Day in the Life of…

    Yizhang Li graduated from King’s Ely Sixth Form in 2020 and is studying Philosophy, Politics and Economics at University College London.

    He said: “The entire King’s Ely community has been really supportive of me. I have received help from all departments, both inside and outside the classroom. This really shaped my academic understanding of my subjects and nurtured my interest in my current program. We also had lots of extracurricular opportunities like the Maths Challenge and tours to Parliament.

    “My boarding house was a place where I saw my independence grow as well. The tutors, staff and domestic team were all extremely kind to provide the best environment possible for me to take up my responsibilities and challenge myself.

    “One thing that I absolutely loved but probably won’t get at University is walking to lessons and having Ely Cathedral so close, as well as crossing the fields for Games. Ely itself is an amazing place to live.”
