Kesgrave Schools

Every year parents of kids needing to go to a Kesgrave school in Suffolk for the first time, or moving up to a new school or college are having to make tough decisions as regards their child's forthcoming learning requirements. Which school in Kesgrave should I position my offspring? It is a difficult decision to make as it can have a profound positive/negative outcome on how your child develops all through childhood and therefore a massive effect on that child as he or she passes into adulthood and thereafter.

So how do you decide on a specific school from the Kesgrave region?

  • Every so often it is easy if your child 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 perhaps need to send your offspring to a specialised school to cater for your child.
  • Faith Schools
  • Your son/daughter attended a linked nursery/primary/secondary school.
  • Entry exam or selection test (grammar schools and some others select a percentage of their pupils on scholarly ability)
  • Assessment or audition (if the school awards a certain number of places on the basis of aptitude for certain subjects)

On the whole most parents decisions are based on the excellence of the school and the propinquity of the school to your locality or work location, if it is easy to drop your son/daughter off in the mornings for instance.

On the surface of things - the class of a school is customarily determined by results which are published each and every year in all of the regular newspapers. It's a simple matter of comparing one schools results next to one another from the Kesgrave region. Of course as everybody knows data are generally flawed to some degree or other. Children's 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 performance.
