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…
“Finding Windermere School has been a transformational experience for our family. When we moved up from London, we found ourselves welcomed by the whole community. The School provides not only a first class academic grounding for our children, but also knows both of them inside out as individuals. It plays to and encourages their strengths, whilst helping them to work on the areas where they are less strong. The range of opportunities offered seems boundless – in technology, speech and drama, games, sports, art, music, cooking, gardening, photography – I could go on and on. The School makes the most of our magnificent surroundings to develop the children’s life skills and confidence. Despite its friendly and close-knit feel, it has a deep belief in internationalism and has a broad, outward-looking approach to the world beyond Windermere, which is very important to us. We feel very lucky to have such a fantastic school on our doorstep here in the Lakes.”
