Helping parents to secure the best possible education for their children
The Scholarship Hunt is an educational consultancy, tutoring, coaching and advisory service which helps parents to ensure that their children receive the best school education possible.
Whatever one’s background, wealth, or life experience, we believe that all parents would like their children to have as good as, if not an even better, education than they had themselves.
The challenge, however, is that the UK’s education system has changed dramatically in recent years.
This means that the approaches our parents took to secure our school places aren’t sufficient any longer.
Parents need to marshal all the available resources to ensure they give their children the best possible start in life.

What quality of education do you want for your children?
Although the days of your child attending university or commencing work might feel far away in the distance, it’s important to have an outline plan, so consider the following:
- Do you have specific ideas about the type of career that might be best for them?
- If funds weren’t an issue, what school would you like them to attend?
- Are there any particular skills or subjects that they’re already showing an interest in?
- Have you thought about which university courses might be interesting to them?
In beginning to start forming answers to these questions will help to guide your thoughts as to the best educational pathway for your child.
A blended approach can provide the best results
In Britain we have our state / maintained education system, along with a selection of wonderful private / independent schools, and in addition we are also legally permitted to home school our children if we wish to do so.
This means that in order to make the best decision for their children, parents need to be able to understand the complexities and permutations of the current British schooling system.
Understanding which of these three approaches would be the most appropriate educational pathway for your child, including, perhaps, when to switch from one route to another, requires the consideration of many issues.
Education is one of the few purchases that we, as parents, make that we don’t directly benefit from ourselves.
Even if parents are considering sending their child to a top state or maintained school, there will still a variety of costs involved.
Would you like to have a conversation about your child’s education?
