Corwen Schools

Each year parents of kids needing to go to a Corwen school in Clwyd 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 upcoming schooling requirements. Which school in Corwen should I position my offspring? It's a difficult decision to make as it can have a profound positive/negative upshot on how your child develops for the duration of childhood and as a result a mammoth effect on that son/daughter as he or she passes into adulthood and thereafter.

So how do you decide on a unique school from the Corwen locale?

  • At times 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 previously attended the school.
  • Your closeness to the school.
  • You or your child has a special education needs. You may well need to send your child to a specialised school to cater for your child.
  • Faith Schools
  • Your son/daughter went to a linked nursery/primary/secondary school.
  • Entrance exam or selection test (grammar schools and some others choose a quantity of their pupils on educational ability)
  • Assessment or audition (if the establishment awards a precise 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 closeness of the school to your location or work location, if it's straightforward to drop your son/daughter off in the mornings for instance.

On the surface of things - the worth of a school is customarily determined by results which are available each and every year in all of the regular newspapers. It's a simple matter of comparing one schools results against one another from the Corwen area. Of course as everybody knows data are generally flawed to some degree or other. Children's results for a particular school may be twisted for lots of different reasons

  • Quality of intake to the school
  • Different 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 results.

Ofsted is an legitimate body which writes reports on schools in the Corwen area as well as the rest of the UK. In a nutshell these reports will disclose how the school is doing, as well as showing that the school is improving or not. Bear in mind your child is expected to attend a Corwen Primary or Corwen Secondary school for some years, so it's important to realize if a school is on the way up or down.

Via a schools bureaucrat reports and results is a good initial mode of weeding out the wheat from the chaff, after that it's fundamental you go and pay a visit to the potential new school on their open day. This is a good means to find out more about the schools policies, its culture and it will also allow you to put questions straight to the head of the school.
