Pembroke Schools

Each year parents of children requiring to go to a Pembroke school in Dyfed for the first time, or moving up to a new school or college are having to make tough decisions regarding their child's impending learning requirements. Which school in Pembroke should I place my son/daughter? It's a tough choice to make as it can have a profound positive/negative consequence on how your child develops for the duration of childhood and therefore a colossal effect on that offspring as he or she passes into later life.

So how do you select a specific school from the Pembroke area?

  • From time to time it is easy if your son/daughter already has a sibling or siblings who will be at the school when your other child starts or elder siblings in the past attended the school.
  • Your proximity to the school.
  • You or your child has a disability. You may possibly want to send off your child to a specialised school to look after your offspring.
  • Religious Schools
  • Your offspring attended an associated nursery/primary/secondary school.
  • Entry exam or selection test (grammar schools and some others decide on a quantity of their pupils on academic ability)
  • Assessment or audition (if the school awards a precise number of places on the basis of aptitude for certain subjects)

On the whole most parents decisions are based on the excellence of the school and the nearness of the school to your home or work location, if it is easy to drop your offspring off in the mornings for example.

On the surface of things - the quality of a school is by and large 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 against one another from the Pembroke area. Of course as every person knows stats 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 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.
