Day or Boarding Schools
Primum Agmen has helped many families find places for their children at leading public schools. Our consultants have enabled children to win places at some of the most prestigious establishments that are part of the Eaton Group schools and the Rugby Group schools.
Entry procedures and requirements for schools vary considerably, but in all cases the most important aspect of your application will be your child’s current results and references. It is essential to choose a school or college which will support them to achieve impressive exam results, as this offers the best chance of gaining entry to the university and degree course of choice.
In addition to the application, recommendations, and test scores, the school interview is often a key factor in gaining private school admission. It is likely that the family of the applicant will be invited to the school both to look around and to have a conversation, formal or otherwise, with an admissions officer and/or other staff. Depending on the child’s age, the admissions officer might hold a private interview with the child, or focus on speaking with parents.
Admission to a top public school demands a significant amount of administration. From registration and academic assessments, to providing school reports and references, most leading schools require a vast amount of paperwork to support any application. All our consultants are experienced at liaising with school registrars and bursars in order to ensure that all documentation is completed accurately and delivered in a timely fashion. Their personal and professional contacts with admissions offices of many of the top schools help to make this complicated process as efficient and effortless as possible.
We are immensely proud of our past and present students, many of whom gain scholarships at leading public schools each year and go on to lead flourishing careers.

Summer courses provide an advantage to families looking to educate their children in the UK. The competition for places at leading schools increases year on year: gaining access to a summer programme enhances a child’s chances of a successful application at their institution of choice.
These programmes provide an unforgettable experience with additional English tuition, diverse activities and an engaging social programme, becoming a passport to new friendships and cultural understanding. All programmes are located in top independent schools with outstanding facilities and can be tailored to exact requirements including language, sports, arts or cultural development.
Staying with British families
Primum Agmen offers opportunities to stay with reputable host families enhancing knowledge of English language and British culture. We take great care in choosing the right host family for your children to ensure that they will feel secure, relaxed and be treated as a member of the family. All children gain access to a dedicated language tutor offering tuition in both English as a Foreign Language (EFL) and English Literature in accordance with the National Curriculum. Each stay offers a diverse range of cultural and outdoor activities organised by the family.
Every child is matched to a family with children of similar age and supported by a full time tutor. We either place children on their own or in small groups. Each family is fully vetted and all members of the family aged 18 or above have CRB checks and are fully insured.
Primum Agmen has an extensive experience of advising families on summer programmes at leading boarding schools and bespoke placements with our partner host families. In addition to representing some of the best summer language and activity courses at British boarding schools, we have devised our own effective methods to learn English through language and cultural immersion.

Independent schools will not admit overseas pupils under the age of 18 unless they have a local guardian. The level of involvement that each school expects from Guardians varies between institutions but the welfare and wellbeing of their pupils are becoming increasingly important.
This is a legal requirement as The UK Visas and Immigration (UKVI), which is responsible for student Visas and Boarding Schools, requires all students under 18, whose families live overseas, to have a legal guardian who is resident in the UK.
Guardians perform several roles. They provide a place for your child to stay during the numerous school holidays. Compulsory exeats are often existent at many schools, weekends and half-term breaks when all pupils have to leave. Guardians may need to serve as your representatives, making decisions on behalf of your child. For example, signing forms, attending parents’ evenings and being available in an emergency, if your child falls ill or is temporarily or permanently excluded from school. Guardians also assist with travel arrangements and half term holidays. In addition, guardians are sometimes required to manage financial transactions such as school fees and spending money.
All Primum Agmen guardians are fully insured and CRB checked, experienced and trained to deliver the highest standards of care. A great additional benefit, that some of them have, is being part of the Primum Agmen team of specialists, which gives them an advantage of knowing the family and the child from the first day of making an application to school.
Primum Agmen is immensely proud of the success of our pupils, which is always exemplified by the dedicated care of our excellent team of guardians.
To find the right guardian for your child please do not hesitate to contact us.

Some students who need time to adjust to the freedom and independence that university offers, find that taking a gap year is advantageous, offering a chance to learn about oneself, develop increased confidence and skills, embrace different cultures and develop a more rounded personality.
Many graduate employers have a good understanding of the benefits that a gap year offers and the wide range of soft skills it helps to develop. Graduate entry-level jobs require these skills in equal measure alongside academic ability because formal qualifications do not give employers much comprehension of an applicant's competence in these areas.
Primum Agmen can offer advice on gap year options and work experience placements that will enhance employment and higher education prospects as well as providing fulfilling experiences, ensuring that time spent in the UK or overseas, is extremely beneficial.
Gaining a place at your school of choice is becoming increasingly challenging as competition for places at leading schools increases every year, the need for the right type of support at the right time, makes all the difference. A personal tutor can often find a weak area and address the problem whereas a teacher may overlook this in a larger class of children.
Our tutoring service works in tandem with the school curriculum to provide close monitoring of your child’s development increasing their chances of getting into the best schools. Every member of our tutoring team has the qualifications and experience to ensure that your child is above the standard required by the time they sit their entrance exams.
Each child assigned a tutor will benefit from a completely individualised, results-driven, confidence building experience. By understanding your child’s academic strengths and weaknesses, as well as their individual personalities and learning styles, we can provide an intelligent and successful match to one of our expert tutors.
Residential tuition is also available where tutors live with a family during their holidays providing individualised tutoring to one or more children. Tutors can also organise and supervise recreational, sporting and cultural activities for children during this time.
The reputation we have cultivated for consistently providing the highest quality tutoring, common entrance test preparation, and admissions advice makes us immensely proud of our team.
It has been a real pleasure collaborating with the Founder and Director of the Primum Agmen Group, Elvina Gilvanova, and her exceptional team over the past two years of my work. From unique client relations to the smallest details, everything has always been of the highest standard, which allowed me to concentrate on the most important aspect of the work, the teaching.
Among the most commendable qualities of the Primum Agmen team are their direct approach, intelligent management and a very personal touch, which always enables them to resolve any issues speedily and efficiently. I am very much looking forward to expanding our working relationship and building new exciting business and education opportunities
