Esher Schools

Every year parents of children needing to go to a Esher school in Surrey 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 forthcoming schooling requirements. Which school in Esher should I put my son/daughter? It's a testing judgment to make as it can have a profound positive/negative effect on how your child develops for the duration of childhood and thus a huge effect on that son/daughter as he or she passes into later life.

So how do you choose a particular school from the Esher area?

  • Now and then 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 previously attended the school.
  • Your nearness to the school.
  • You or your child has a disability. You may perhaps require to send your child to a specialised school to cater for your child.
  • Religious Schools
  • Your child attended a linked nursery/primary/secondary school.
  • Entrance exam or selection test (grammar schools and some others decide on a proportion of their pupils on educational ability)
  • Assessment or audition (if the establishment awards a precise number of places on the basis of aptitude for selected subjects)

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

On the surface of things - the value of a school is generally determined by results which are available each and every year in all of the standard newspapers. It's a simple matter of comparing one schools results alongside one another from the Esher region. Of course as everybody knows statistics are generally flawed to some degree or other. Children's 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 authoritative body which writes reports on schools in the Esher 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. Remember your offspring is liable to attend a Esher Primary or Esher Secondary school for quite a few years, so it is important to know if a school is improving or not.

By a schools Ofsted reports and results is a fine initial 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 good technique 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.
