Wythenshawe Schools

Each year parents of children requiring to go to a Wythenshawe school in Greater Manchester for the first time, or moving up to a new school or college are having to make tough decisions on their child's future education requirements. Which school in Wythenshawe should I put my son/daughter? It is a difficult choice to make as it can have a profound positive/negative end product on how your child develops during childhood and therefore a mammoth effect on that child as he or she passes into later life.

So how do you choose a specific school from the Wythenshawe locale?

  • Now and then it is easy if your offspring already has a sibling or siblings who will be at the establishment when your other child starts or grown-up siblings before attended the school.
  • Your proximity to the school.
  • You or your child has a disability. You may well want to send your child to a specialised school to look after your offspring.
  • Religious Schools
  • Your child attended a connected nursery/primary/secondary school.
  • Entrance exam or selection test (grammar schools and other establishments select a percentage of their pupils on intellectual 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 closeness of the school to your location or work location, if it's easy to drop your offspring off in the mornings for instance.

On the surface of things - the quality of a school is regularly 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 against one another from the Wythenshawe locale. Of course as every person 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
  • 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 performance.

Ofsted is an legitimate body which writes reports on schools in the Wythenshawe area as well as the rest of the United Kingdom. In a nutshell these reports will say how the school is doing, as well as showing that the school is improving or not. Bear in mind your son/daughter is likely to attend a Wythenshawe Primary or Wythenshawe Secondary school for a number of years, so it's important to know if a school is on the way up or down.

Via a schools sanctioned reports and results is a good initial mode of weeding out the wheat from the chaff, after that it's most important you go and visit the potential new school on their open day. This is a fantastic route to find out more about the schools policies, its ethos and it will also allow you to put questions directly to the head of the school.
