Bonas MacFarlane's support changes children’s lives. Thousands have benefitted from our approach.

A successful education involves many small, sure steps – from cradle to career. Our advisors, tutors and mentors support children as they take these steps. We achieve our results with careful planning, outstanding educators and by placing children into the right schools and universities. Crucially, we share a long-term aim – helping children to become successful and happy adults.

Bonas MacFarlane really is unique amongst education providers. Having spent twenty-five years as pioneers of our services, we are now the leading company of our kind in the UK. We manage all aspects of a child’s education.

Our team of full-time consultants and support staff, based in Chelsea, is the largest and broadest-reaching of any education support provider in the UK.

Please call us to discuss your family's tutoring requirements and to book a tutor. If you would prefer to make an online enquiry, please use our client enquiry form.




Arranging support may appear to be straightforward, but should only be trusted by a parent to a professional. One ill-advised school selection or ineffective tutorial can end a lifelong ambition. Our team provide integrated support, led at each step by a relevant specialist advisor, who has fully assessed each child’s particular needs, motivations, abilities and ways of learning.

This is what separates Bonas MacFarlane, as educational advisors, from other organisations. Our approach produces measurable, accelerated outcomes. Our programmes give children the confidence, curiosity and skills to become life-long learners.



Many services we offer today were pioneered by us; we have been leading the way since our foundation and continue to do so.

Online Tuition

The Bonas MacFarlane online platform supports all of Bonas MacFarlane’s teaching. It provides students with access to support 24/7 from anywhere in the world.


Decades of experience have shown us how to provide really effective one-to-one tuition. No other approach is so focussed on individual needs, so able to inspire and so free of any limits.


For children to learn, the right conditions need to be in place. They need to be calm, confident and certain that they are supported. Very few teenagers work to their full potential without an involved parent or mentor on hand.

School Placements

Bonas MacFarlane advises hundreds of families each year, helping parents to plan and support every aspect of their child’s education, from cradle to career.

University Admissions

Bonas MacFarlane has over twenty years of experience helping students gain admission to many of the world’s highest-ranked universities. Our college advisory service is discreet and completely bespoke. 

Camp Bonas

Deep in the English countryside, campers aged 8-13 learn to look after themselves through real-life adventure and an immersion in a rural setting.



The company is led by educators. All the directors are personally involved, overseeing the progress of every child on our books.
