School Search

British independent education remains at the forefront of educational innovation and creativity. Each school has its own distinguishing features and special qualities, though all impart the character and confidence that is the hallmark of an independently educated child. Such schools prepare children for life and open doors to the most prestigious universities and career opportunities worldwide.

Whatever their age, Gabbitas Education can help you find the best school for your child at the appropriate entry point; this includes entry at 7+, 11+, 13+ and the sixth form. Our consultants have a detailed personal knowledge of leading British independent schools from a range of perspectives, allowing us to provide you and your child with the best support and advice. We take time to understand your needs before guiding you through the complex choices and entrance processes involved.

Because we have been helping families for over 140 years, our knowledge, experience and connections are unrivalled and we continue to work with our families as they and their children continue to grow and develop. We are delighted to offer assistance with any educational question from fees to exam options.
