About Us

Educational advice and expert private tuition


A relentless commitment to the success of children and young people

For over 30 years, Lionheart has provided completely tailored educational advice and support to children and young people throughout the world, from tuition to bespoke schooling to revision courses, educational consultancy and advice. During this time, we have built a reputation for excellence based upon outstanding results.

We aim to make learning as easy and interesting as possible, to give your child the confidence to ask questions, and ultimately, to succeed. We do this through working with brilliant tutors with whom children can identify, and consultants who can guide your child through the most complex of educational issues. Some of the world’s most prominent and influential families have retained our services because of our highly tailored approach, our fantastic team of tutors and our relentless commitment to children and young people.

Our tutors are proud of their ability to inspire a newfound passion for learning. With this comes confidence, and with confidence comes success.


Since Lionheart Education was established in 1989, one thing has never changed: putting children at the centre of everything we do.


Over the past 30 years, we have built a reputation for excellence based upon outstanding results. Some families come back to us year after year because we provide excellent services, thanks to our highly dedicated staff and our brilliant team of tutors, who will help your child succeed no matter what journey they have been on prior to Lionheart.


We aim to make learning as easy and interesting as possible, to give your child the confidence to ask questions, and ultimately, to succeed. We place as much emphasis on attaining academic excellence as we do in acquiring the necessary social skills to grow into a confident adult. We do this through working with brilliant, highly-qualified and knowledgeable tutors, with whom children can identify and learn an array of academic and non-academic skills.


We only work with people who understand how complex a child’s needs can be, and are patient, caring and understanding at all times. We aim for every contact you and your child have with us to be an extremely positive and reassuring experience, and there is always someone you can speak to at Lionheart should you have any questions or worries.


Integrity is at the core of everything we do, and this is why so many educational and medical professionals refer children to us. We will always be honest in our advice, and only suggest solutions that we think are in your child’s best interests. We pride ourselves on being the people you can turn to when you need professional, discreet and trustworthy advice.

Embracing our differences

Lionheart regularly works with young people
who have neurodiverse cognitive profiles. Our unique approach often involves
a multi-disciplinary team including teachers,
tutors, SENCOs, psychotherapists, psychologists and psychiatrists. By building a holistic profile, considering psychological traits and mental health, Lionheart’s team is able to create an evolving educational pathway for your child to thrive thanks to a deeper recognition of
their cognitive abilities.

A fully bespoke approach

At Lionheart, everything we do is tailored to each individual student. We achieve this by spending a large amount of time speaking to children and their families, so we understand what their needs are. We only recommend educational options that we know are likely to work, based on thorough assessments, and a very extensive experience of the UK education system as well as child and adolescent mental health.

The G. family, Educational Consultancy clients

You are all marvellous. Bill and I appreciated your time last year while we were deciding how to go about our family’s future. Your input and wisdom were greatly appreciated. If only all schools were run with your philosophy, imagine the kind of world that would be created!
