Tring Schools

Each year parents of kids needing to go to a Tring school in Hertfordshire for the first time, or moving up to a new school or college are having to make tough decisions on their child's upcoming schooling needs. Which school in Tring should I place my offspring? It is a difficult judgment to make as it can have a profound positive/negative effect on how your child develops throughout childhood and consequently a massive consequence on that offspring as he or she passes into maturity.

So how do you choose a specific school from the Tring area?

  • Sometimes it is simple if your son/daughter already has a sibling or siblings who will be at the establishment when your other child starts or elder siblings in the past attended the school.
  • Your nearness to the school.
  • You or your child has a disability. You may want to send your offspring to a specialised school to look after your child.
  • Religious Schools
  • Your offspring attended a linked nursery/primary/secondary school.
  • Entry exam or selection test (grammar schools and some others select a percentage of their pupils on educational ability)
  • Assessment or interview (if the school awards a certain number of spaces 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 value of a school is customarily determined by results which are published each and every year in all of the regular newspapers. It's a simple matter of comparing one schools results next to one another from the Tring area. Of course as everybody 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
  • Separate 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 official body which writes reports on schools in the Tring area as well as the rest of the United Kingdom. In a nutshell these reports will voice how the school is doing, as well as showing that the school is improving or not. Remember your offspring is expected to attend a Tring Primary or Tring Secondary school for some years, so it is significant to know if a school is on the way up or down.

Via a schools formal reports and results is a decent preliminary way of weeding out the wheat from the chaff, after that it is fundamental you go and call on the potential new school on their open day. This is a fantastic way to find out more about the schools policies, its culture and it will also permit you to put questions straight to the head of the school.
