Steeple Morden Schools

Every year parents of kids needing to go to a Steeple Morden school in Cambridgeshire for the first time, or moving up to a new school or college are having to make tough decisions about their child's future schooling requirements. Which school in Steeple Morden should I position my offspring? It is a hard choice to make as it can have a profound positive/negative effect on how your child develops all through childhood and therefore a colossal consequence on that child as he or she passes into maturity.

So how do you select a unique school from the Steeple Morden vicinity?

  • On occasion it is simple if your offspring already has a sibling or siblings who will be at the school when your other child starts or older siblings in the past attended the school.
  • Your proximity to the school.
  • You or your child has a disability. You might need to send your offspring to a specialised school to cater for your offspring.
  • Faith Schools
  • Your son/daughter went to a connected nursery/primary/secondary school.
  • Entrance exam or selection test (grammar schools and some others choose a fraction of their pupils on scholarly ability)
  • Assessment or audition (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 proximity of the school to your location or work location, if it is easy to drop your offspring off in the mornings for instance.

On the surface of things - the characteristic of a school is as a rule determined by results which are published each and every year in all of the standard newspapers. It is a simple matter of comparing one schools results alongside one another from the Steeple Morden area. 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.
