Client Reviews


From Google Reviews

Jess and her professional and friendly team helped us find the perfect sixth form school for our daughter as we moved to London. Initially, we contacted Quintessential to save time we knew we would spend on analysing the schools’ performance, availability of the not so common A-level subjects our daughter had chosen, exam boards, etc. Jess and her team exceeded our expectations in that they suggested some schools that weren't in our initial long-list, and we ended up picking one of them. In addition, they handled all communication with the schools’ admissions (submitting the required information, arranging the interviews, virtual visits, etc.) fast and efficiently navigating around the schools’ summer holidays. A few months into the school year now, we see even better how much value Jess’ team has created for us—the school is a perfect match culture-wise, and our daughter is happy with all four of her A-levels classes while also performing very well—what else the parents to wish for?…

To all family and friends with children, we now recommend Quintessential on every occasion if asked about choosing the best high school in the UK, a university (in the UK and also abroad—as we've also consulted) or filing the applications.

Professionalism, quality, value. Without a doubt, making the decision to use the service provided by Quintessentially Education was the best choice I could have made. From beginning to end, Jess and her team of highly skilled professionals were able to help me with every detail of the application process. If you're looking for a service to help navigate the, honestly, confusing application process - get in touch with Quintessentially!

I cannot recommend Quintessentially Education highly enough. They provided invaluable help when our daughter had to step out of school in the run up to GCSEs, on medical grounds. Quintessentially Education found us an excellent tutor who covered all of the subjects needed by us and continued to support us during the many changes in policy for the GCSE exams over the summer of 2020. Our child was able to keep her academic life on track and is now happily back in school taking the A Levels needed to apply for university
