Keystone has a comprehensive knowledge of the British private school system as well as top UK universities, and can advise families on all of their educational options. Keystone uses a variety of sources to gather reliable, objective information about schools, universities, education systems, curricula, teachers and the whole gamut of the contemporary educational experience. We have also built up relationships with knowledgeable and respected members of the educational community.
Keystone has always had an international clientele and set up the first overseas office in 2012. We now have offices in London, Hong Kong, Singapore and Shenzhen and work with families from many other parts of the world. We like meeting clients face-to-face, and often do so at our offices – where possible we may be able to come to you. In instances when families are unable to meet we set up video conferences using either Skype or Zoom.
