Bletchley Schools

Every year parents of kids needing to go to a Bletchley school in Buckinghamshire 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 Bletchley should I situate my son/daughter? It is a difficult judgment to make as it can have a profound positive/negative upshot on how your child develops for the duration of childhood and consequently a huge effect on that offspring as he or she passes into later life.

So how do you choose a unique school from the Bletchley region?

  • Every now and then it is simple if your child already has a sibling or siblings who will be at the establishment when your other child starts or grown-up siblings before attended the school.
  • Your nearness to the school.
  • You or your child has a disability. You may need to send off your offspring to a specialised school to look after your loved one.
  • Faith Schools
  • Your child attended an associated nursery/primary/secondary school.
  • Entrance exam or selection test (grammar schools and some others select a proportion of their pupils on intellectual ability)
  • Assessment or interview (if the establishment awards a certain number of spaces on the basis of aptitude for selected subjects)

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

On the surface of things - the value of a school is frequently determined by results which are available each and every year in all of the standard newspapers. It's a simple matter of comparing one schools results next to one another from the Bletchley area. Of course as everybody knows stats are generally flawed to some degree or other. Kids results for a particular school may be twisted for lots of different reasons

  • Class of intake to the school
  • Several Exam 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 official body which writes reports on schools in the Bletchley area as well as the rest of the United Kingdom. In a nutshell these reports will say how the school is doing, as well as showing that the school is improving or not. Bear in mind your son/daughter is likely to attend a Bletchley Primary or Bletchley Secondary school for some years, so it is imperative to identify if a school is improving or not.

Via a schools formal reports and results is a nice early mode of weeding out the wheat from the chaff, after that it is most important you go and call on the potential new school on their open day. This is a good method to find out more about the schools policies, its ethos and it will also permit you to put questions straight to the head of the school.
