1. Consultation with our Education Consultants
Make an appointment now to meet with our education consultants. We can know more about the academic and non-academic strengths of your children, and therefore suggest schools that fit you most.
This is a crucial step in the UK schools admission procedure. It would be great if you can meet us with references such as the school reports, awards, or public exam results for the last two years. This helps our consultants to give more in-depth and personalised advice.

2. School Selections
Our education consultants will have 5 to 7 school suggestions for you.
We share with you both quantitative data such as public examination results and boarding student ratios, and also qualitative information such as school ethos and academic support of the recommended schools in order to help you make the right choice.
Parents or students usually choose only 3 to 5 schools from our recommended schools for final application because application fee, admission tests and interviews are required for each school applied. Thus, it would be more time and cost effective to submit 3 to 5 applications.
The application fee for each UK boarding school is usually from £75 to £350.
3. Application forms and school registration forms
After selecting suitable schools, our consultants will share with you the application form for each school.
For the application fee, you can pay directly to each school and send the transfer receipt to us for follow-up. Alternatively, you can also submit the application fee to us and we can help to pay on behalf of you.
4. School interviews and admission tests arrangements
Our consultants will communicate with the UK schools you applied after the submission of application forms and fees. When we have received the test papers and interview schedule, you will be invited to our company for the admission tests and interviews.
If you are looking for preparation for admission tests or interviews, please contact us on WhatsApp +852 6996 8619.
In addition, some UK independent boarding schools require international students to provide a UKiset report when applying for admission. James-Lee Consultancy is a UKiset Authorized Test Centre. If you want to know what UKiset is and how to apply, please visit our UKiset page or contact us directly to find out more.
5. School offers acceptance and payment of school deposit
After the admission tests and interviews, we will receive the acceptance letter and relevant documents if you successfully obtain a place from a UK school. Our consultants will forward these documents to you, and will provide instructions and assistance in accepting the offer.
If you get an offer from more than one school, we will give advice to help you make the best choice.
The deposit for different UK schools varies greatly. Some schools are charging £500, but more are usually charging the full boarding fee for one term, which is around £13,000.
For students with a UK passport or right of abode, the UK schools admission procedures are already completed at this stage.
6. UK guardian arrangements
All UK boarding schools require a UK guardian for international students aged under 18.
The requirements for a UK guardian are different for each school, but in general, most of the schools require an AEGIS-accredited UK guardianship company. For the details of our guardianship service, please visit our website: https://www.jamesleeconsultancy.com/en-gb/guardianship
7. Student visa application
All international students are required to apply for a UK student visa.
There are two main types of UK student visa, the Tier 4 (General) for students aged 16 or above, and Tier 4 (Child) for students aged under 16. A CAS (Confirmation of Acceptance for Studies) letter from the school is required for the application of both types of visa.
You can apply for a student visa by yourself, or we are also here to help. For details of the service and price, please contact us on WhatsApp +852 6996 8619.
8. Pre-departure preparations
All UK schools will send an email to parents before the start of the school year, advising what preparation needs to be done and what forms need to be filled in, for example, extra-curricular activity form, subject selection form and school uniform ordering form.
Even though this is not one of the UK schools admission procedures, our consultants are still here to help. Feel free to contact us for any enquiries.
