Lincoln Schools

Every year parents of children requiring to go to a Lincoln school in Lincolnshire for the first time, or moving up to a new school or college are having to make tough decisions as regards their child's upcoming education needs. Which school in Lincoln should I put my son/daughter? It is a hard judgment to make as it can have a profound positive/negative end product on how your child develops throughout childhood and for that reason a colossal effect on that child as he or she passes into adulthood and thereafter.

So how do you decide upon a particular school from the Lincoln region?

  • Occasionally it is easy if your child already has a sibling or siblings who will be at the school when your other child starts or elder siblings in the past attended the school.
  • Your closeness to the school.
  • You or your child has a disability. You may possibly need to send off your child to a specialised school to look after your offspring.
  • Religious Schools
  • Your offspring went to a connected nursery/primary/secondary school.
  • Entry exam or selection test (grammar schools and some others go for a fraction of their pupils on scholastic ability)
  • Assessment or audition (if the establishment awards a certain number of spaces 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 easy to drop your son/daughter off in the mornings for instance.

On the surface of things - the class of a school is frequently determined by results which are published each and every year in all of the standard newspapers. It is a simple matter of comparing one schools results alongside one another from the Lincoln vicinity. Of course as everybody knows data are generally flawed to some degree or other. Kids results for a particular school may be twisted for lots of different reasons

  • Class of intake to the school
  • Several 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 performance.

Ofsted is an bureaucratic body which writes reports on schools in the Lincoln area as well as the rest of the UK.
