Since 2006, Laura Chalk has been at the helm of Connections providing expert help in finding the right school for your child in the UK. Having already put her four children through various boarding schools in England, Laura’s personal experience and knowledge ensures that Connections offers an invaluable insight for parents on how to find the perfect school that will be the right fit for their child and their needs.
In 2019 Elsie Woodward took over the Guardianship for Connections and Laura & Elsie lead the team. Laura arranges placements and Elsie is the Educational Guardian.
We understand that parents can feel anxious about sending their children abroad, and you can be confident that we know and understand the educational system and we have a fantastic network of contacts and friends in schools, making us the ideal connection between parents and schools.
The team at Connections have either had children at boarding schools or have been through the system themselves so you’re in very safe hands! We understand that every child is different so we personally assess each child before making recommendations on which schools would suit them. Our goal is to help you find the right education for your child whilst also acting as their UK guardian throughout the school year.
We also offer help and advice with summer courses and we go above and beyond just booking a place. There are thousands of summer schools on the internet but finding the right one can be tough. Connections do all the research for you and personally arrange the best summer course for your child.
