Audley Schools

Every year parents of kids requiring to go to a Audley school in Staffordshire for the first time, or moving up to a new school or college are having to make tough decisions in relation to their child's impending learning needs. Which school in Audley should I put my offspring? It is a testing decision to make as it can have a profound positive/negative outcome on how your child develops during childhood and for that reason a massive consequence on that offspring as he or she passes into later life.

So how do you choose a particular school from the Audley region?

  • Every so often it is easy if your son/daughter already has a sibling or siblings who will be at the school when your other child starts or grown-up siblings earlier attended the school.
  • Your location to the school.
  • You or your child has a disability. You may perhaps require to send off your offspring to a specialised school to cater for your offspring.
  • Religious Schools
  • Your child attended a connected nursery/primary/secondary school.
  • Entry exam or selection test (grammar schools and some others select 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 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's easy to drop your son/daughter off in the mornings for instance.

On the surface of things - the characteristic of a school is commonly 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 alongside one another from the Audley 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.
