Biddenden Schools

Every year parents of children requiring to go to a Biddenden school in Kent for the first time, or moving up to a new school or college are having to make tough decisions about their child's impending schooling requirements. Which school in Biddenden should I position my offspring? It is a difficult choice to make as it can have a profound positive/negative consequence on how your child develops through childhood and thus a gigantic consequence on that son/daughter as he or she passes into maturity.

So how do you decide on a specific school from the Biddenden area?

  • Every now and then it is effortless if your child already has a sibling or siblings who will be at the establishment when your other child starts or older siblings before attended the school.
  • Your closeness to the school.
  • You or your child has a disability. You may want to send your child to a specialised school to look after your offspring.
  • Religious Schools
  • Your son/daughter went to a connected nursery/primary/secondary school.
  • Entrance exam or selection test (grammar schools and some others select a percentage of their pupils on academic ability)
  • Assessment or interview (if the establishment awards a certain number of places on the basis of aptitude for selected subjects)

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