  • About

    IWeYou is a multi-armed consultancy, which provides expertise in achieving outstanding outcomes for young people, their families, teachers and schools. Founded by Ben Coombes, it draws on his extensive experience in the independent education sector - latterly 16 years as a member of various Senior Leadership Teams. Ben now splits his time between advising schools on how to get the best teacher outcomes, and helping families navigate the somewhat tricky waters that is school life. Ben has also advised parents on choosing the right school, and the preparation required for a successful transition to Senior School at 11+ and 13+.

    IWeYou is founded upon the principle that there is no “one size fits all” and especially not in education. Ben is passionate about enabling people to be the best they can be, and works with families and young people to guide them to ‘terra firma’ when the seas of schooling prove difficult to navigate. Ben empowers children and young people to feel a success in their own right, free from society’s narrow definitions. To this end, Ben has authored a revolutionary Life Skills Programme for children aged 10-13 years old; which aims to ensure that children are able to function in a community outside their family, and build their own “tribe”.

    IWeYou have recently partnered with a renowned communication company to bring corporate strategies to the world of education. This approach includes everything on the parental journey from first to final impressions, and all the interactions in between. IWeYou is passionate about leading the whole school to provide the best all round educational experience for children and parents. The IWeYou method incorporates awareness of importance of the varied marketplace, and the need for a school to sell its own ‘identity ‘ to the parent body in a professional manner.

    Ben's passion lies in ensuring all aspects of parental/scholastic communication are outstanding, drawn from his extensive experience in the education sector. IWeYou tackles everything from the mundane, the critical and the emotional aspects of communication to the subliminal messages we transmit (through environment, body language and other less obvious methods). Above all, we believe that the best defence is a good offence, and that proactive communication is the only type of communication a school should practise.

    Ben has been described by a client as “a very good listener, problem solver, direction finder {who has} huge emotional intelligence”.
