Barton-le-Clay Schools

Each year parents of children needing to go to a Barton-le-Clay school in Bedfordshire 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 impending learning requirements. Which school in Barton-le-Clay should I position my offspring? It's a hard decision to make as it can have a profound positive/negative consequence on how your child develops during childhood and therefore a mammoth consequence on that son/daughter as he or she passes into maturity.

So how do you select a specific school from the Barton-le-Clay region?

  • Occasionally it is easy if your offspring already has a sibling or siblings who will be at the establishment when your other child starts or elder siblings before attended the school.
  • Your closeness to the school.
  • You or your child has a special education needs. You may well need to send off your child to a specialised school to cater for your child.
  • Religious Schools
  • Your offspring went to a connected nursery/primary/secondary school.
  • Entry exam or selection test (grammar schools and some others go for a percentage of their pupils on educational ability)
  • Assessment or audition (if the school awards a precise number of places on the basis of aptitude for selected subjects)

On the whole most parents decisions are based on the excellence of the school and the proximity of the school to your home or work location, if it is easy to drop your son/daughter off in the mornings for instance.

Children's results for a particular school may be twisted for lots of different reasons

  • Class of intake to the school
  • Separate 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 results.
