Every year parents of children requiring to go to a Ticehurst school in East Sussex for the first time, or moving up to a new school or college are having to make tough decisions on their child's forthcoming education requirements. Which school in Ticehurst should I locate my son/daughter? It is a difficult judgment to make as it can have a profound positive/negative outcome on how your child develops throughout childhood and as a result a colossal consequence on that child as he or she passes into maturity.

So how do you choose a particular school from the Ticehurst area?

  • On occasion it is easy if your child 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 location to the school.
  • You or your child has a special education needs. You may perhaps want to send your offspring to a specialised school to look after your loved one.
  • Faith Schools
  • Your child attended a linked nursery/primary/secondary school.
  • Entrance exam or selection test (grammar schools and other establishments decide on a fraction of their pupils on academic 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 characteristic of the school and the propinquity of the school to your locality or work location, if it's easy to drop your son/daughter off in the mornings for example.
