East Horsley Schools

Every year parents of children needing to go to a East Horsley school in Surrey for the first time, or moving up to a new school or college are having to make tough decisions about their child's future education needs. Which school in East Horsley should I situate my child? It is a testing decision to make as it can have a profound positive/negative end product on how your child develops for the duration of childhood and as a result a mammoth consequence on that offspring as he or she passes into adulthood and thereafter.

So how do you decide upon a specific school from the East Horsley region?

  • Every so often it is easy 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 in the past attended the school.
  • Your proximity to the school.
  • You or your child has a disability. You may perhaps need to send off your child to a specialised school to look after your loved one.
  • Faith Schools
  • Your son/daughter attended an associated nursery/primary/secondary school.
  • Entry exam or selection test (grammar schools and some others go for a proportion of their pupils on scholarly ability)
  • Assessment or audition (if the school awards a precise number of spaces on the basis of aptitude for selected subjects)

On the whole most parents decisions are based on the excellence of the school and the proximity 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 excellence of a school is ordinarily determined by results which are available each and every year in all of the usual newspapers. It is a simple matter of comparing one schools results next to one another from the East Horsley area. Of course as everyone knows statistics are generally flawed to some degree or other. Kids results for a particular school may be twisted for lots of different reasons

  • Quality 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 East Horsley area as well as the rest of the United Kingdom. In a nutshell these reports will declare how the school is doing, as well as showing that the school is improving or not. Bear in mind your offspring is to be expected to attend a East Horsley Primary or East Horsley Secondary school for quite a few years, so it's significant to identify if a school is improving or not.

Using a schools official reports and results is a useful opening mode of weeding out the wheat from the chaff, after that it is imperative you go and go to the potential new school on their open day. This is a great 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.
