Who we are

Kieran and Liam are Cambridge educated brothers who applied from comprehensive schools and found the process difficult to navigate. They started Leading Education in 2017 with the aim of demystifying the application process for top UK universities through a suite of programmes, ranging in cost, that would allow any student to get access to support regardless of background.
