So how do you select a specific school from the Rugeley vicinity?

  • Sometimes it is simple if your son/daughter already has a sibling or siblings who will be at the establishment when your other child starts or grown-up siblings earlier attended the school.
  • Your nearness to the school.
  • You or your child has a special education needs. You might want to send your child to a specialised school to look after your child.
  • Faith Schools
  • Your offspring attended a linked nursery/primary/secondary school.
  • Entry exam or selection test (grammar schools and some others choose a percentage of their pupils on intellectual ability)
  • Assessment or interview (if the establishment awards a specified number of places on the basis of aptitude for certain subjects)
