Frensham Schools

Each year parents of kids requiring to go to a Frensham school in Surrey for the first time, or moving up to a new school or college are having to make tough decisions on their child's upcoming schooling needs. Which school in Frensham should I put my child? It is a difficult choice to make as it can have a profound positive/negative consequence on how your child develops through childhood and therefore a mammoth consequence on that son/daughter as he or she passes into maturity.

So how do you decide on a specific school from the Frensham locale?

  • 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 before attended the school.
  • Your location to the school.
  • You or your child has a disability. You may well want to send your offspring to a specialised school to cater for your loved one.
  • Religious Schools
  • Your child went to a connected nursery/primary/secondary school.
  • Entry exam or selection test (grammar schools and other establishments decide on a proportion of their pupils on educational ability)
  • Assessment or audition (if the establishment awards a specified 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 is easy to drop your child off in the mornings for example.

On the surface of things - the excellence of a school is regularly determined by results which are published 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 Frensham region. Of course as everybody knows statistics 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 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.

Ofsted is an formal body which writes reports on schools in the Frensham area as well as the rest of the United Kingdom. In a nutshell these reports will voice how the school is doing, as well as showing that the school is improving or not. Take into account your offspring is liable to attend a Frensham Primary or Frensham Secondary school for several years, so it is of the essence to know if a school is improving or not.

Using a schools bureaucrat reports and results is a decent initial mode of weeding out the wheat from the chaff, after that it is imperative you go and pay a quick visit to the potential new school on their open day. This is a great technique to find out more about the schools policies, its philosophy and it will also permit you to put questions straight to the head of the school.
