Spear’s Review

‘Understanding the family and child is paramount to help them reach the specific goals set,’ says Carfax Education’s senior consultant Sophie Oakes, who specialises in placing pupils across the UK and Switzerland, particularly in London day schools and senior boarding schools, and preparing them for top universities. 

‘My guiding principle is finding the best solution for the child so that they can reach their goals in the best environment,’ she says. ‘I build up a strong rapport with the family and understand their motives and aspirations. Different schools suit different children, and there is no such thing as a “top school”. Children can achieve far more by being in a school that suits their character and learning style.’
