  • On occasion it is simple if your child 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 disability. You might want to send off your offspring to a specialised school to look after your offspring.
  • Faith Schools
  • Your child went to an associated nursery/primary/secondary school.
  • Entry exam or selection test (grammar schools and some others choose a percentage of their pupils on scholastic ability)
  • Assessment or interview (if the establishment awards a certain number of places on the basis of aptitude for selected subjects)
