Rugby Schools

Every year parents of kids requiring to go to a Rugby school in Warwickshire 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 upcoming learning needs. Which school in Rugby should I position my son/daughter? It is a hard judgment to make as it can have a profound positive/negative outcome on how your child develops all through childhood and thus a huge consequence on that offspring as he or she passes into later life.

So how do you choose a specific school from the Rugby area?

  • Sometimes 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 previously attended the school.
  • Your location to the school.
  • You or your child has a special education needs. You may perhaps need to send off your child to a specialised school to cater for your loved one.
  • Religious Schools
  • Your son/daughter attended an associated nursery/primary/secondary school.
  • Entrance exam or selection test (grammar schools and some others select a proportion of their pupils on scholarly ability)
  • Assessment or interview (if the establishment awards a specified number of places on the basis of aptitude for certain subjects)

On the whole most parents decisions are based on the excellence of the school and the proximity of the school to your location or work location, if it's easy to drop your son/daughter off in the mornings for example.

On the surface of things - the value of a school is typically determined by results which are published each and every year in all of the regular newspapers. It is a simple matter of comparing one schools results next to one another from the Rugby locale. Of course as every person knows data are generally flawed to some degree or other. Kids results for a particular school may be twisted for lots of different reasons

  • Condition of intake to the school
  • Separate 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 results.
