Services for Counsellors and Schools

We work with schools across the UK and Europe to develop their US application provision through in-school courses and workshops, CPD events, and training.

Schools Courses

We are the leading provider of school courses for US entrances tests in the UK. We run SAT and ACT courses in schools around the UK and Europe. These are typically weekly throughout a term, and cover all the content and test technique needed to score highly.

Schools Courses


As part of our commitment to schools, we host conferences, Q&A events, training days, and masterclasses for teachers on US applications, keeping you informed of the latest developments in the field. Delegates from over 100 schools have attended our events over the last three years. We regularly host a range of speakers including representatives from the Fulbright Commission, Sporting Elite, Princeton University, and other leading colleges. We are always very happy to present at school education fairs and student or parent information sessions. As partners of the Fulbright Commission we also exhibit at their USA College Day each September. If you would like us to present at your school, please get in touch with us here . To register for one of our events or to come to a networking session, please choose an option below or contact us for more information.

Teacher Training

We offer training sessions to teachers at schools at all stages of the development of their US provision, from beginners to experienced advisors. For advisors relatively new in post, we run a comprehensive training programme that takes you through all aspects of US applications with sample transcripts, references, and practical resources to use in school. For more experienced advisors, we run masterclasses in central London, where we look at strategic and management issues around US applications. These training events help you to build capacity for provision within your schools and turn your US programme into an asset, helping you to attract international students to your sixth form programme.

School Consultancy

If you want to build capacity at your school without the extra expense of a dedicated member of staff, you might want to consider our US applications consultancy services. We can wrap around the existing provision at your school, supporting you at peak times of year with a range of services, from proof-reading college application essays to offering a drop-in service for students. We also offer strategic planning in school provision for overseas applications and can advise schools that are newly developing or expanding their US applications programmes.

Application Essay Workshops

We run in-school workshops for students writing their US college application essays, such as the Common App essay, University of California Personal Statement, and supplementary essays. These are a great way to get students started on this important aspect of the US application process.
