What ages of student does JUNO help?

Our specialist consultancy covers all entry points; from nursery to senior school admission (4+, 8+, 11+, 13+ and 16+). We also provide rapid support for non-standard entry points, late applications, and mid-year applications.

We also have a University Admissions department supports students with their Bachelor’s application – helping them shape their future by attending a leading UK university. Juno is able to provide guidance and support at any stage during the education journey.

When should I start planning my child’s application?

If you are considering sending your child to a private independent school in the UK, it is important to be aware of registration dates, application timelines and entrance exam dates.

Our team can not stress enough how essential it is to have a clear plan in place at least two years ahead to secure everything. Places are often limited and allocated on a first-come, first-served basis. We cannot always guarantee a placement with late applications albeit our high success rates.

Fortunately, there is some flexibility with alternative entry points.

Can JUNO help with guardianship and accommodation in the UK?

Our partners in Guardianship ensure your child has someone they know and trust for half term holidays, exeat weekends (short weekend breaks), for parent teacher meetings and can provide language support/speak the same language as your child if necessary.

We have partners in Property Sourcing, who can help your family’s move and help our university students find accommodation.

Does JUNO provide tutors? What subjects can I choose from?

Juno’s school placement team is made up of industry experts with first hand experience in and an in-depth knowledge of education within the UK. Juno has the right tutor for your child – any subject at any level.

We believe that there is no such thing as a bad student, just a student learning in the wrong way for them. Our expert team of tutors take time to understand what is learning method is best suited to your child and help them reach their true potential.

What is the best time to join a UK school?

There are three typical entry points 11+ (entry into Year 7), 13+ (entry into Year 9), 16+ (entry into Year 12). We advise parents to stick to these entry points as it is easiest to integrate and make friends, however, this is not always possible. Mid-year and non-standard entry is possible but care should be taken with selecting the right school to avoid disappointment. 

In theory, gaining a spot for 11+ is the easiest (and at 16+ the hardest) because there are more school spaces available. However, it is more important to consider when the child is ready, as the same child could struggle at 11+ but enter a top school at 16+.

My child needs to move schools in the middle of the academic year, is this possible? What does the process look like?

Similar to a late application, your child will usually need to register, sit assessments and interviews. The applications have a higher chance of success when the child is a great fit for the school or is exceptional in a particular area (e.g. academically). Offers will depend on school place availability.

My child has SEND. What are the options and how would a school in the UK look at this?

In general, children with SEND tend to benefit from learning in independent schools due to the smaller class sizes and more individual attention. Also, some schools have intentionally developed strong SEND departments.

In assessing your child, the schools will consider whether they have adequate support for your child. Otherwise, your child will be treated as a regular applicant and awarded their provisions (e.g. extra time, typing on a computer) in the school assessments.

My child has challenges with their mental health. Will JUNO take this into consideration when finding the right school?

Children with mental health issues may benefit more from smaller and more nurturing schools. Some schools are well known for having developed strong support systems to address this. In assessing your child, the schools will consider whether they have adequate support for your child. Otherwise, your child will be treated as a regular applicant.
