  • 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 loved one.
  • Faith Schools
  • Your son/daughter went to a connected nursery/primary/secondary school.
  • Entry exam or selection test (grammar schools and other establishments select a quantity of their pupils on academic ability)
