Lymington Schools

Every year parents of kids needing to go to a Lymington school in Hampshire for the first time, or moving up to a new school or college are having to make tough decisions as regards their child's future education needs. Which school in Lymington should I put my son/daughter? It is a tough choice to make as it can have a profound positive/negative end product on how your child develops through childhood and as a result a massive effect on that offspring as he or she passes into adulthood and thereafter.

So how do you decide upon a particular school from the Lymington vicinity?

  • On occasion it is effortless if your offspring already has a sibling or siblings who will be at the school when your other child starts or grown-up siblings earlier attended the school.
  • Your nearness to the school.
  • You or your child has a special education needs. You may perhaps want to send off your child to a specialised school to look after your child.
  • Faith Schools
  • Your offspring went to a linked nursery/primary/secondary school.
  • Entry exam or selection test (grammar schools and some others 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 propinquity 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 quality of a school is ordinarily 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 next to one another from the Lymington locale. Of course as every person knows stats 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
  • Separate 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.
