"Stephanie's help has been invaluable in finding a UK school for our son. We found her extremely responsive, despite the time difference between Singapore and Europe" ~ Mme Sibony, France
"Waypoints has been instrumental in our boarding school search. Throughout the process, Stephanie has been able to provide timely advice and sound recommendations specific to my child. She invested time and patience to understand his interests, preferences as well as his strengths, in addition to our own requirements as parents" ~ Mr & Mrs Tan, Singapore
We advise parents looking for a British-curriculum education for their children. Our particular area of expertise is UK independent (private) day and boarding schools for 7 to 18 year olds, and Swiss boarding schools. We are also known for our insight into British international schools throughout Asia and globally.
We offer specialist help and application support for students applying to the world’s top universities. Our customised and detailed approach is a mentorship programme that goes the extra mile – from choosing the right course and building a coherent list of universities, to providing future career advice. With knowledge of further education options in the UK, North America, Europe and Asia, we help every individual to find their passion while being well set-up for life.
Test and Interview Prep
Interviews and entrance exams are a common feature of school application procedures. We familiarise you with what to expect and conduct mock interviews for practice. Having seen many students through school entrance exams, we can prepare students with advice on curriculum differences, analysing gaps in knowledge and working through our bank of past papers.
We have access to excellent tutors, whether for specific curriculum needs or general enrichment. Our tutors are experienced teachers who are familiar with local school syllabuses as well as the UK National Curriculum. We also work closely with advanced tutors for UK and US university preparation. Depending on your preference, tutoring may take place online or in person, and at your residence or in a centre.
Why Choose Us?
Look Past League Tables
Exam result league tables can be incomplete and misleading. We examine the particular strengths or weaknesses of a school with you and offer an insight into a school’s personality and nuances.
Independent and Ethical
We work exclusively for the child and their families, providing honest and impartial advice.
Our knowledge of schools is truly global. We are experts in British education but collaborate closely with advisors and other professionals in the US, Switzerland, Europe and Asia, enabling your choices to include the best schools in the world.
We understand both different approaches to education globally, having experienced first-hand the different systems of schools in Asia, Switzerland and the United Kingdom.
Every child is unique and the search for a school must reflect this. Preferences on academics, location, student body make-up, optimal year of entry, international recognition and branding, extra-curricular activities, are always factored in.
Excellent Tutors Network
We have access to experienced tutors who can assist in preparing for entrance examinations and guide you in what to expect for interviews and assessments.
