Llanrwst Schools

Each year parents of kids needing to go to a Llanrwst 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 future learning needs. Which school in Llanrwst should I put my son/daughter? It's a testing decision to make as it can have a profound positive/negative effect on how your child develops during childhood and therefore a mammoth consequence on that son/daughter as he or she passes into adulthood and thereafter.

So how do you select a particular school from the Llanrwst region?

  • From time to time it is effortless if your child already has a sibling or siblings who will be at the school when your other child starts or older siblings earlier attended the school.
  • Your nearness to the school.
  • You or your child has a disability. You may well require to send your offspring to a specialised school to look after your loved one.
  • Religious Schools
  • Your son/daughter attended an associated nursery/primary/secondary school.
  • Entry exam or selection test (grammar schools and some others choose a proportion 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 locality or work location, if it's easy to drop your son/daughter off in the mornings for instance.

On the surface of things - the class of a school is regularly determined by results which are available each and every year in all of the standard newspapers. It is a simple matter of comparing one schools results alongside one another from the Llanrwst vicinity. Of course as every person knows statistics are generally flawed to some degree or other. Children's 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 results.

Ofsted is an official body which writes reports on schools in the Llanrwst area as well as the rest of the United Kingdom. In a nutshell these reports will declare 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 Llanrwst Primary or Llanrwst Secondary school for a number of years, so it's of the essence to know if a school is on the way up or down.

Via a schools formal reports and results is a decent preliminary mode of weeding out the wheat from the chaff, after that it's most important you go and pay a visit to the potential new school on their open day. This is a fantastic system to find out more about the schools policies, its philosophy and it will also permit you to put questions directly to the head of the school.
