Provide advice and services to apply for UK schools
Our team and the school will establish a close cooperative relationship to assist students' academic and personal development. So we regularly visit the students to ensure that they are actively involved in school life and establish good relations with their teachers and peers. We also follow up on our students’ progression within schools, ensuring there are opportunities to develop their full potentials and the right environment to cultivate a sound character.
Whist in need or under concerns, we encourage students to contact us directly via email or phone to the V & W team, we will be acting as a legal appointed guardian to go to the school. Given the variety of options in selecting the right school for your child, it is important for you to know what types of schools are available:
Different Elite Schools and well-known schools:
UK’s most elite schools are Eton College (located in Windsor), Harrow College (near London), St Paul Girls' School and Winchester College etc.
In the South, there are several famous private schools, for example St. Swithun's school (located in Winchester), King Edward VI School (in Southampton) and Bradfield College (in Reading).
Students holding British and Portuguese passports can apply for public (free tuition) schools. UK’s most leading public schools are mainly based in London, Windsor, Winchester and Portsmouth. These schools have different subsidiary DSS schools with first-class equipment and first-class teachers, so students with Portuguese nationality are most encouraged by us to enroll in those schools. If parents have their own reasons, or prefer to let children attend private boarding schools, some private schools also offer a special tuition discount to EU/EEA national (i.e. British and Portuguese passport holders).
Non-EU/EEA nationals (such as Hong Kong nationals or PRC nationals) can apply for private/ elite (boarding) schools.

Our team will support students throughout all the UCAS stages; starting from applying to your selections to accepting the offers, we will assist you to deal with all procedures and to response to the universities appropriately.
Joining our V&W guardianship package, we will not only offer and provide all the transportations and airport collections but also assist and nurture the students, build up the ability to integrate into school community and help them develop all skills in order to ensure their wellbeing, welfare and completion of their studies.
We believe that each student has their own potentials and we understand all the legislations and the regulations for the Special Educational Needs (SEN) and disabled pupils. Our SEN coordinator will also provide a full support to those parents whose children need to have the best schooling and Educational Health Plan for them.
In the UK, all the SEN schools meet the diverse needs of children with SEN by being proactive in adopting varied approaches to learning and teaching in a fun and relaxing environment. Children will be able to maximize their participation and engagement. They will learn strategies that enable them to cope with the challenging environments and to become more efficient in focusing on what they still need to learn. These will help each child cope with frustrations and develop self-confidence and pro-social relationships. Our target is to help them become confident, self-reliant and caring members of the society.
Our V&W SEN support team will perform and provide assessment, consultation and follow-up services in the school selections for your children. We will strive to do our best to understand their needs and interests as well as getting the best pastoral supports from the school. We will adjust our guardianship plans to better suit all the needs of your children and ensure that they can enjoy equal educational opportunities in accordance with the law regardless of their special needs.
