Twickenham Schools

Each year parents of children needing to go to a Twickenham school in Middlesex for the first time, or moving up to a new school or college are having to make tough decisions on their child's impending learning needs. Which school in Twickenham should I position my son/daughter? It is a difficult judgment to make as it can have a profound positive/negative effect on how your child develops all through childhood and therefore a mammoth effect on that offspring as he or she passes into maturity.

So how do you opt for a unique school from the Twickenham locale?

  • Sometimes it is easy if your offspring already has a sibling or siblings who will be at the establishment when your other child starts or older siblings previously attended the school.
  • Your nearness to the school.
  • You or your child has a special education needs. You may possibly need to send off your child to a specialised school to cater for your loved one.
  • Faith Schools
  • Your offspring went to a linked nursery/primary/secondary school.
  • Entrance exam or selection test (grammar schools and other establishments choose a fraction of their pupils on scholastic 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 propinquity of the school to your locality or work location, if it's easy to drop your offspring off in the mornings for instance.

On the surface of things - the quality of a school is by and large determined by results which are available each and every year in all of the regular newspapers. It is a simple matter of comparing one schools results alongside one another from the Twickenham area. Of course as everybody knows statistics 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 legitimate body which writes reports on schools in the Twickenham area as well as the rest of the United Kingdom. In a nutshell these reports will voice how the school is doing, as well as showing that the school is improving or not. Remember your son/daughter is liable to attend a Twickenham Primary or Twickenham Secondary school for quite a few years, so it's significant to identify if a school is on the way up or down.

By a schools official reports and results is a good preliminary mode of weeding out the wheat from the chaff, after that it is imperative you go and visit the potential new school on their open day. This is a great means 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.
