There are very few people like Jim who can take a young boy at an early age, understand his potential, focus his attention and then with a balance of encouragement, participation in team events and academic discipline bring out the best in their characters.

I am delighted to provide an endorsement for Jim Hewer and Heritage Education. Jim has great integrity and has always provided sound, reliable and trustworthy advice regarding school choices for our children, as well as exemplary customer service.
Mike FordDirector, Touch Associates
I have known Jim Hewer in my capacity as a schoolmaster at Cheltenham College for fifteen years. Jim is the consummate professional; his attention detail is second to none, and it is always a pleasure to work with him. His inherently gregarious character makes him a complete natural when it comes to liaising with parents, pupils and peers. His enthusiasm is infectious; his diligence commendable, and he is, without pretence, a most natural communicator. I admire his work ethic and his admirable sense of self-belief. Jim’s tenacity enables him to always see through situations from conception to realisation, as is evinced by his excellent track record. As a Housemaster and Head of Department at an Independent Senior School myself, I have witnessed Mr Hewer conduct himself admirably in a number of guises, namely as a prep school liaison point for our school, Cheltenham College; as a very worthy ambassador for his alma mater and as a superb Senior Master of Papplewick Preparatory School in Berkshire. Jim’s unquestionable loyalty and unstinting reliability make him an asset to any company or organisation; he thrives on teamwork. Jim’s magnetism and wide-reaching skill set make him an attractive proposition vis-à-vis schools’ placements. I am delighted to have worked with him in the past, and, as a consequence, he comes highly recommended.
Mr Nick NelsonChristowe Housemaster, Cheltenham College
I have known Jim for the last 10 years, principally as a teacher at my sons' school. Jim is an individual of the highest integrity and is passionate about his subject. He shows a really good understanding of the children under his care – most importantly they appreciate and respect him.
Jim also has a great relationship with the parents of his pupils and confidently communicates with them on all matters. Through his career as a teacher Jim has developed a strong network across the various private schools around London. I have no doubt that Jim can use these relationships to place children in the schools that suit them best and can confidently recommend him to others.
