What we do

@school-in-UK aims to place overseas students in the school or institution which is best able to provide for their individual needs.

Founded in 2005, @school-in-UK is owned and directed by Neil and Eileen Pockett. Using knowledge gained from years of experience working in the UK education system, we will identify the school or course that will best suit the individual need of each student. Students seeking to study in the UK should be applying to the most appropriate school, college and course for them, not the most famous or that may claim to ‘be the best’.

The uniqueness of the service is its comprehensiveness and delivery by experienced practitioners from within the UK schools’ sector. The trust that schools have in the judgements made by Neil has meant that happy and motivated students enjoy their study in the UK, whether it be for a two week course or for long-term education.

@school-in-UK has close links with and an understanding of UK independent boarding schools, colleges and English language schools. Students and parents will receive guidance in understanding the details of all the UK courses available, as well as help with the application process.
