Profile building & personal statements

One of the most important aspects of applying to university in the U.K. is profile building. Applications are entirely holistic and it is necessary to have a strategy to build yourself into a well-rounded student whom universities want to invite to study with them and to write the perfect personal statement to match

We help you to do this over a period of 12-18 months, focussing on building on your academic skills, your extracurriculars (sports, art, charity work), and soft skills too like interview skills. We will help build you into the ideal student and get you into your dream university.

Specialised mentoring

After your first academic assessment, we will advise you on the best suited courses for higher education. Once you have decided which course/s you will apply for we will help you with expert tuition in that subject.

All of our tutors hold degrees from the best universities in the world and are experts in their fields. We advise you to undertake 12 months of tuition with one of our experts who will help you become well read in your chosen course and develop a strong grasp of the subject. We also assist in tuition for advanced entrance exams for Oxbridge, Law and Medicine.

English language tuition - TOEFL & IELTS

All universities in the U.K. have requirements to pass English language exams such as IELTS and TOEFL, for the best universities this is often a 6.5 on the IELTS exam or B2/C1 level.

Our tutors are highly experienced at helping students pass these exams and improve their English level.

  • When should I go to a UK school?
    The main entry points for UK schools are 13+ (just before GCSEs) and 16+ for A-levels. However, most schools also have some flexibility for 14+ entry if you miss 13+ but competition here is extremely fierce - usually just 4 or 5 places available. Prep schools also take boys from aged 7 and schools that have a large intake of day students, like Sevenoaks also take children at 11+ ( a very popular entry point for non-boarders in the UK)
  • How long does it take to prepare to enter a school in the UK?
    The answer to this depends on a number of factors. You could argue that UK students spend 6 or 7 years in top prep schools preparing to enter the very best boarding schools. The truth is that it takes on average 2 years to prepare to enter a UK school. The main focus is on profile building, English and entrance examinations. But one should be mindful of the process. Some schools such as Eton college require registration of the pupil at aged 9, this is 4 years before the desired entry point. You really need to be on top of the process from quite a young age to put in place the necessary steps to ensure success.
  • What is your success rate?
    We have a very strong success rate, in fact it's 100%. We are extremely fortunate to work with clients who really understand the process and appreciate how much work they need to put in. Due to this, our clients listen to our advice religiously and invest everything they can into achieving success. As well as this, we only take a certain number of clients each year allowing us to focus entirely on them. As of 2021, every single one of our students has been placed at their top choice school.
  • How can Spencer Perceval help me with this process?
    Every year we work with a small number of clients helping them enter UK schools. We work extremely hard to understand the relative strengths and weaknesses of your child’s application and then build out a strategy to maximise your chances of success. Profile building is at the centre of this strategy. Our consultants work out how to make your child stand out from the crowd, building up an outstanding application that schools won’t be able to turn away. Our consultants are typically ex-head masters and mistresses of leading prep schools and help give you the advice you need to get into your dream school.
  • What is profile building and why is it important?
    Profile building is a key stone of any successful application to a top school or university. Profile building is the continued process of moulding the skills of students to make them the most attractive to schools. This includes developing musical talents, sporting prowess, charity work, academic excellence and much more. We look at pupils and perform a full assessment of their skills and abilities and from this we develop a long term plan to grow in key areas that are most sought after by the most prestigious schools.
  • How are you different from other consultancy firms?
    We centre our approach on learning as much as we can about your child and your family to find the most specialised and effective solution to your needs. Integrity and honesty remain key pillars of our company, we will give you real and pragmatic advice, and strategy to help get the best results for your family. We employ a number of tech solutions to increase transparency so that you may track our work at any time of the day online. Finally, we believe in the British education system and want as many children to have the advantages that it gives, including your family.
