Hoylake Schools

Each year parents of children requiring to go to a Hoylake school in Merseyside for the first time, or moving up to a new school or college are having to make tough decisions on the subject of their child's impending schooling requirements. Which school in Hoylake should I place my child? It's a difficult decision to make as it can have a profound positive/negative consequence on how your child develops for the duration of childhood and thus a mammoth effect on that son/daughter as he or she passes into adulthood and thereafter.

So how do you opt for a specific school from the Hoylake area?

  • Occasionally it is simple if your offspring already has a sibling or siblings who will be at the school when your other child starts or grown-up siblings in the past attended the school.
  • Your proximity to the school.
  • You or your child has a disability. You may well want to send off your child to a specialised school to cater for your offspring.
  • Religious Schools
  • Your child attended a linked nursery/primary/secondary school.
  • Entrance exam or selection test (grammar schools and some others choose a percentage of their pupils on academic ability)
  • Assessment or audition (if the establishment awards a certain number of places on the basis of aptitude for certain subjects)

On the whole most parents decisions are based on the quality of the school and the nearness of the school to your home or work location, if it's easy to drop your son/daughter off in the mornings for instance.

On the surface of things - the excellence of a school is by and large determined by results which are published each and every year in all of the standard newspapers. It's a simple matter of comparing one schools results against one another from the Hoylake 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

  • Condition of intake to the school
  • Separate Exam 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 bureaucratic body which writes reports on schools in the Hoylake area as well as the rest of the UK. In a nutshell these reports will express how the school is doing, as well as showing that the school is improving or not. Bear in mind your child is to be expected to attend a Hoylake Primary or Hoylake Secondary school for some years, so it's imperative to realize if a school is improving or not.

Using a schools official reports and results is a decent opening way of weeding out the wheat from the chaff, after that it is vital you go and go to the potential new school on their open day. This is a fantastic means to find out more about the schools policies, its ethos and it will also allow you to put questions straight to the head of the school.
