Crosby Schools

Every year parents of kids requiring to go to a Crosby school in Merseyside 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 requirements. Which school in Crosby should I place my child? It is a hard judgment to make as it can have a profound positive/negative outcome on how your child develops throughout childhood and as a result a mammoth consequence on that child as he or she passes into maturity.

So how do you choose a unique school from the Crosby region?

  • Every now and then 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 earlier attended the school.
  • Your proximity to the school.
  • You or your child has a disability. You may perhaps need to send your offspring to a specialised school to look after your loved one.
  • Faith Schools
  • Your son/daughter went to a linked nursery/primary/secondary school.
  • Entrance exam or selection test (grammar schools and some others choose a percentage of their pupils on intellectual ability)
  • Assessment or interview (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 excellence of the school and the proximity 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 value of a school is ordinarily determined by results which are available each and every year in all of the regular newspapers. It's a simple matter of comparing one schools results against one another from the Crosby vicinity. Of course as everyone 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
  • 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 performance.

Ofsted is an legitimate body which writes reports on schools in the Crosby area as well as the rest of the United Kingdom. In a nutshell these reports will declare how the school is doing, as well as showing that the school is improving or not. Consider your son/daughter is expected to attend a Crosby Primary or Crosby Secondary school for some years, so it's imperative to know if a school is on the way up or down.

Using a schools bureaucrat reports and results is a good opening mode of weeding out the wheat from the chaff, after that it is very important you go and go to the potential new school on their open day. This is a good system 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.
