Internal School of London (ISL) Group

“The International School of London (ISL) Group has worked with Sarah Teasdale and her company, Educatus Ltd, regarding placement for students at our schools in Doha, Qatar and London and Woking in the UK. Educatus education consultancy helps to find the best solutions to the complex needs of every international family, whether it be a first move, a family needing assistance with special needs concerns or families who do not have English as a first language. 

As schools which specialise in helping families continue mother tongue language and literacy, Sarah has worked with ISL to place international families appropriately. Not only does this require a thorough understanding of the complex issues around language development, but also a deep understanding of all the needs – academic, social and emotional – of each child. Her knowledge of the curricula of all countries is exceptional, which ensures that families are prepared for transitions from one national system to another. 

Sarah’s background and first-hand experience of global mobility means she brings a very personal understanding to each relocation. Her knowledge of academic programmes and curricula covers many countries and education systems so that she can easily translate one country’s experience gracefully into the new country. She knows her clients well and becomes a strong advocate in placing them in the right school. 

She and her team make similar efforts in visiting and understanding each school to ensure the best match for each child. She is always cordial, dependable, reliable and efficient. But most important, she always places the child’s needs at the heart of every relocation.”

“It has been our experience since embarking upon our relationship with Educatus, that as knowledgeable specialist educational consultants they always place the needs of the children first. The parents’ first consideration when choosing an overseas assignment is that their children should not in any way fall behind in their studies or be neglected in any way during their overseas posting. Sarah Teasdale and the very human team at Educatus supports every single member of the family and their needs in a balanced, calming, professional manner with a personalised, empathetic and positive approach. Their attitude to supporting every member of the family is exemplary and we would have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending Educatus. They have helped introduce choice to parents, helped them through the challenging and often bewildering educational system and are a great source of professional sincerity that helps make them a very special family support provider.”

“Hope this message finds you very good. I just wanted to let you know that my daughter started the school today, … she is very happy with that school. The process took almost 2 weeks since the application form was submitted. Your guidance was so helpful for me and I appreciate it a lot, without that it could have been terrible.”

“Sarah and Anna have done a fantastic job for my family, not just once but now twice - to find the perfect choice of school for our two children, in two very different locations.

We first moved to the South-West in 2014 from Poland, where my children attended the French Lycee. In the absence of any French or even international school options in our area, Sarah did a great job screening the British schools in our countryside area that were open to welcoming two non-English speakers, whilst making no compromise on academic standards. More importantly, she also found the right match to suit the needs of our children and their personality. I realised only later how daunting this process can be for English people who are familiar with the Private School system, and how difficult it is to get the right choice of school. Luckily, we were spared all the complexities and challenges of that process and landed very naturally in a wonderful, caring and supportive school, where my children have been thriving.

Three years down the road, we are now relocating to London and went through the process again! In a very different schooling environment, Sarah again did an outstanding job shortlisting the best options based on the individual (and new) needs of our children. In fact she did such a great job with our daughter, who’s incredibly excited about her new school, that we finally managed to convince our son, who wanted to stay boarding in the South West, to consider relocating with us. He has now found a truly great school in London and cannot wait to go there! A huge weight taken off our shoulders!
I am very lucky to have had Sarah and Anna’s support along the way, and feel truly grateful for the amazing support they have been providing to our family.”
