With extensive experience in international education, Winter's CEO Elaine Stallard recognised that there was no single, authoritative source of information and help for parents moving abroad with their children. Often they had to rely on Google, out-of-date information and time-consuming enquiries with schools, before they could even be sure that they were making the choice that was right for their family.
Winter's aims to take the stress out of finding the perfect school for your child.
Elaine's experience in the international education sector led her to recognise the pressing need for an online global comparison tool for international schools.
Elaine has worked at the highest levels in the public and private sectors as an advisor, negotiator and strategist. She is recognised within the International Education sector for her work in establishing Sherborne Qatar. Her advice and negotiating skills have been used by many schools setting up international branches outside their home countries.
