I really do appreciate all the guidance and advice throughout my time at St Paul’s. Your support was honestly invaluable in helping to relieve the stresses of the process.

Applying to universities in the US can seem complicated and overwhelming. We relied solely on the school for support. The thorough yet clear programme to prepare the boys not only helped them feel more confident but they actually enjoyed the process as they were fully supported throughout. The counsellors were very accessible at all times managing the boys directly while keeping parents in the loop. Both my boys got into their first choice university and we have the school to thank for that!
