Brooklands Schools

Each year parents of kids needing to go to a Brooklands school in Greater Manchester for the first time, or moving up to a new school or college are having to make tough decisions regarding their child's future learning needs. Which school in Brooklands should I place my offspring? It is a difficult decision to make as it can have a profound positive/negative upshot on how your child develops through childhood and as a result a colossal consequence on that son/daughter as he or she passes into adulthood and thereafter.

So how do you opt for a unique school from the Brooklands area?

  • Occasionally it is easy if your son/daughter already has a sibling or siblings who will be at the establishment when your other child starts or grown-up siblings previously attended the school.
  • Your location to the school.
  • You or your child has a special education needs. You may well require to send your child to a specialised school to look after your offspring.
  • Faith Schools
  • Your offspring went to a linked nursery/primary/secondary school.
  • Entry exam or selection test (grammar schools and some others decide on a percentage of their pupils on educational ability)
  • Assessment or audition (if the establishment awards a specified number of places on the basis of aptitude for certain subjects)

On the whole most parents decisions are based on the quality of the school and the propinquity of the school to your home or work location, if it's easy to drop your child off in the mornings for example.

On the surface of things - the class of a school is customarily determined by results which are published each and every year in all of the standard newspapers. It's a simple matter of comparing one schools results alongside one another from the Brooklands vicinity. Of course as everybody knows data 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
  • 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.

Ofsted is an bureaucratic body which writes reports on schools in the Brooklands area as well as the rest of the UK. In a nutshell these reports will voice how the school is doing, as well as showing that the school is improving or not. Remember your son/daughter is expected to attend a Brooklands Primary or Brooklands Secondary school for a number of years, so it's of the essence to realize if a school is improving or not.

Via a schools bureaucrat reports and results is a nice opening mode of weeding out the wheat from the chaff, after that it is imperative you go and visit the potential new school on their open day. This is a great technique 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.
