We were recently approached by the HR department of a software company to support a family moving from Brazil to London midway through the school year.
The parents, whose child was of reception age (the first year in the British curriculum), were determined to find a place in an outstanding state school, and in a very sought-after area of London.
We were recently approached by the HR department of a business in France to support an assignee who had serious reservations about relocating their two primary school age children to London.
The decision to relocate or not depended on the ability to find a suitable school for the children.
We were recently approached by the HR Department of a luxury sector business to support a family moving from Australia to London midway through the school year.
The parents were determined for all three of their children (all primary school age) to attend the same state school with outstanding or good rating.
Many businesses opt to let assignees organise their own relocation, unaware of just how much work goes into executing a successful move – a hidden cost that will only become apparent later on.
We used our experience to calculate how much time, and ultimately cost, can be saved by using London relocation services.
We were recently approached by a family from the US who wanted to relocate to London with their 5-year old daughter within a very short time frame.
The challenge was double: the family could not come over to London ahead of their move to choose their home, and their child was to start school in London 5 weeks after the initial contact with Simply London.
