School Search/Education Advice

For employees who are relocating to or within the UK with school-age children, securing a place at a suitable school should be a top priority; at HCR, we ensure that schooling requirements are one of the first points of discussion between the Relocation Consultant and the employee (and/or their partner, where relevant). As many parents prefer to live somewhere with direct access to decent education for their children, the chosen school(s) will often determine where to concentrate the Home Search.

HCR’s Education Services will ensure that the right schools are selected for your employees’ children, taking into account the following variables:

  • State/government  or private/independent
  • Single-sex or co-educated
  • Boarding or day-schooling only
  • Special needs
  • Religious affiliation
  • UK English, other language, or international curriculum

HCR provide two main levels of School Search services, with the additional option of Ad-Hoc Telephone Consultancy, allowing our clients to decide on the level of support for their employees according to requirements and budget.

  • Published information of schools appropriate to the ages of the children within an appropriate radius of the place of work
  • Current waitlists/places available
