Tighnabruaich Schools

Each year parents of kids needing to go to a Tighnabruaich school in Argyll for the first time, or moving up to a new school or college are having to make tough decisions in relation to their child's forthcoming education requirements. Which school in Tighnabruaich should I put my offspring? It is a tough decision to make as it can have a profound positive/negative consequence on how your child develops for the duration of childhood and for that reason a colossal consequence on that offspring as he or she passes into maturity.

So how do you opt for a unique school from the Tighnabruaich area?

  • From time to time it is easy if your child already has a sibling or siblings who will be at the school when your other child starts or older siblings before attended the school.
  • Your proximity to the school.
  • You or your child has a disability. You may well want to send your child to a specialised school to cater for your child.
  • Religious Schools
  • Your son/daughter went to a connected nursery/primary/secondary school.
  • Entry exam or selection test (grammar schools and other establishments go for a quantity of their pupils on academic ability)
  • Assessment or interview (if the establishment awards a certain number of places on the basis of aptitude for certain subjects)

On the whole most parents decisions are based on the characteristic of the school and the closeness of the school to your home or work location, if it is straightforward to drop your offspring off in the mornings for instance.

On the surface of things - the value of a school is by and large determined by results which are available each and every year in all of the usual newspapers. It is a simple matter of comparing one schools results alongside one another from the Tighnabruaich region. Of course as everyone knows stats are generally flawed to some degree or other. Kids results for a particular school may be twisted for lots of different reasons

  • Condition of intake to the school
  • Several Examination boards
  • Expulsions to school
  • Quality of Teaching
  • Type of School
  • Social impact of surrounding area
  • Over/Under subscribed

So there are in fact lots of variables that can increase/decrease a schools performance.

Ofsted is an bureaucratic body which writes reports on schools in the Tighnabruaich area as well as the rest of the UK. In a nutshell these reports will reveal how the school is doing, as well as showing that the school is improving or not. Take into account your son/daughter is to be expected to attend a Tighnabruaich Primary or Tighnabruaich Secondary school for some years, so it is important to identify if a school is improving or not.

Via a schools bureaucrat reports and results is a fine early mode of weeding out the wheat from the chaff, after that it is most important you go and go to see the potential new school on their open day. This is a great tactic to find out more about the schools policies, its ethos and it will also permit you to put questions directly to the head of the school.
