Liphook Schools

Each year parents of children needing to go to a Liphook school in Hampshire 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 learning needs. Which school in Liphook should I locate my child? It is a difficult decision to make as it can have a profound positive/negative outcome on how your child develops throughout childhood and as a result a massive effect on that child as he or she passes into adulthood and thereafter.

So how do you opt for a unique school from the Liphook vicinity?

  • Occasionally it is painless if your offspring 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 proximity to the school.
  • You or your child has a disability. You may possibly want to send your child to a specialised school to look after your child.
  • Faith Schools
  • Your offspring went to a connected nursery/primary/secondary school.
  • Entrance exam or selection test (grammar schools and some others go for a fraction of their pupils on educational ability)
  • Assessment or interview (if the establishment awards a specified number of spaces on the basis of aptitude for selected subjects)

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

On the surface of things - the class 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 alongside one another from the Liphook vicinity. 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 Liphook 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 expected to attend a Liphook Primary or Liphook Secondary school for several years, so it is imperative to recognize if a school is improving or not.

Via a schools bureaucrat reports and results is a fine early way of weeding out the wheat from the chaff, after that it is imperative you go and go to see the potential new school on their open day. This is a good system 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.
