Olga, 14 years old

A girl transfers from the European to the British Selective Boarding School at 14+, requiring Tier 4 Visa

Family Background Information

14 year old girl learning English as a foreign language wanted to study at a boarding school in the UK but in close proximity to London.


Based on the EducAd’s assessment and interview, our consultant shortlisted suitable boarding girls schools located around London. The visits to four shortlisted schools were arranged for the girl and her family. Mock entry exams took place to get the child familiar with the assessment process in the UK and then EducAd tutor built on the strength and worked with the weaknesses to prepare the girl for school entrance exams. She was offered a place to her first choice school and continued to receive online tutoring in Science over the summer holidays.

Parents' view

We used EducAd a couple of times for organising a summer school for our daughter. This year we finally decided to send Olga to boarding school and of course, chose EducAd.

Regardless of the fact that we made the decision to transfer Olga late, EducAd promptly found the best options for us and lead us very skilfully through the process. In very limited time they organised school visits, pre-assessment, tutor in Science and school entry exams in St.Petersburg, which really eased the whole process for us. Our consultant, Yuliya was always available and helped with all our request. I highly recommend EducAd Consulting for any of your educational needs.
