Moston Schools

Each year parents of children requiring to go to a Moston 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 education requirements. Which school in Moston should I situate my son/daughter? It is a hard choice to make as it can have a profound positive/negative upshot on how your child develops during childhood and thus a massive consequence on that son/daughter as he or she passes into later life.

So how do you decide on a specific school from the Moston region?

  • Every now and then it is simple 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 nearness to the school.
  • You or your child has a special education needs. You may perhaps need to send your child to a specialised school to cater for your offspring.
  • Faith Schools
  • Your child attended a linked nursery/primary/secondary school.
  • Entry exam or selection test (grammar schools and some others decide on a proportion of their pupils on educational ability)
  • Assessment or interview (if the school awards a certain number of spaces on the basis of aptitude for certain subjects)

On the whole most parents decisions are based on the quality of the school and the nearness 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 excellence of a school is generally 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 next to one another from the Moston region. Of course as everyone knows data are generally flawed to some degree or other. Kids results for a particular school may be twisted for lots of different reasons

  • Quality of intake to the school
  • Several 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 performance.
