Each year parents of children needing to go to a Kenilworth school in Warwickshire for the first time, or moving up to a new school or college are having to make tough decisions as regards their child's impending education needs. Which school in Kenilworth should I position my child? It's a testing decision to make as it can have a profound positive/negative upshot on how your child develops during childhood and thus a colossal effect on that child as he or she passes into later life.

So how do you opt for a unique school from the Kenilworth area?

  • On occasion it is simple if your child already has a sibling or siblings who will be at the school when your other child starts or grown-up siblings previously attended the school.
  • Your proximity to the school.
  • You or your child has a disability. You may possibly need to send your child to a specialised school to cater for your loved one.
  • Religious Schools
  • Your child went to a connected nursery/primary/secondary school.
  • Entrance exam or selection test (grammar schools and some others go for a proportion of their pupils on scholarly ability)
  • Assessment or interview (if the establishment awards a specified number of spaces on the basis of aptitude for selected subjects)

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

  • Social impact of surrounding area
  • Over/Under subscribed
