Why are British independent schools so highly regarded?

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.

How can Gabbitas Education help me find the best school for my child?

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.

Can Gabbitas Education look after my family as they move through their education?

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 and subject choices to degree courses.

Can Gabbitas Education help explain the new GCSE Grading System?

GCSEs in England are changing to ensure that young people have the knowledge and skills they need to succeed in the 21st Century. The new GCSEs will ensure that students leave school better prepared for work or further study. They cover more challenging content and are designed to match standards in the strongest performing education systems elsewhere in the world.

The new qualifications will start to be awarded with number grades, rather than letters. The new grading scale runs from 9 to 1 instead of A* to G, with 9 the highest grade. Not all GCSEs are changing at once – English language, English literature and maths have already changed. By 2020, all GCSEs in England will be reformed and graded using numbers instead of letters. The new scale is intended to recognise more clearly the achievements of high-attaining students.

How much does it cost to use the services of Gabbitas Education?

One of our experienced team members will arrange an initial consultancy appointment, charged at an hourly rate, in which we will take the time to understand your requirements and then put together an appropriate package with associated costs for your approval.
