Bangor Schools

Each year parents of kids needing to go to a Bangor school in Gwynedd for the first time, or moving up to a new school or college are having to make tough decisions in relation to their child's forthcoming education requirements. Which school in Bangor should I place my offspring? It is a difficult judgment to make as it can have a profound positive/negative outcome on how your child develops during childhood and for that reason a colossal effect on that son/daughter as he or she passes into maturity.

So how do you choose a unique school from the Bangor region?

  • Every now and then it is effortless if your child 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 closeness to the school.
  • You or your child has a special education needs. You may perhaps require to send off your offspring to a specialised school to look after your loved one.
  • Faith Schools
  • Your son/daughter went to an associated nursery/primary/secondary school.
  • Entry exam or selection test (grammar schools and some others decide on a quantity of their pupils on intellectual ability)
  • Assessment or interview (if the establishment awards a certain number of places on the basis of aptitude for selected subjects)

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

On the surface of things - the excellence of a school is as a rule determined by results which are published each and every year in all of the regular newspapers. It is a simple matter of comparing one schools results against one another from the Bangor locale. Of course as everyone knows data are generally flawed to some degree or other. Children's 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 results.

Ofsted is an authoritative body which writes reports on schools in the Bangor area as well as the rest of the United Kingdom. In a nutshell these reports will disclose how the school is doing, as well as showing that the school is improving or not. Bear in mind your child is likely to attend a Bangor Primary or Bangor Secondary school for quite a few years, so it's of the essence to identify if a school is improving or not.

Using a schools bureaucrat reports and results is a nice opening way of weeding out the wheat from the chaff, after that it is most important you go and go to the potential new school on their open day. This is a fantastic way to find out more about the schools policies, its philosophy and it will also allow you to put questions straight to the head of the school.
