Every year parents of kids requiring to go to a Warwick 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 future schooling requirements. Which school in Warwick should I situate my offspring? It's a testing choice to make as it can have a profound positive/negative effect on how your child develops through childhood and consequently a mammoth effect on that offspring as he or she passes into maturity.

So how do you decide on a unique school from the Warwick locale?

  • Every now and then it is painless if your offspring already has a sibling or siblings who will be at the school when your other child starts or older siblings previously attended the school.
  • Your closeness to the school.
  • You or your child has a special education needs. You may require to send off your child to a specialised school to look after your child.
  • Faith Schools
  • Your son/daughter attended a linked nursery/primary/secondary school.
  • Entry exam or selection test (grammar schools and other establishments select a proportion of their pupils on educational ability)
  • Assessment or interview (if the school awards a precise number of spaces on the basis of aptitude for certain subjects)

On the whole most parents decisions are based on the quality of the school and the nearness of the school to your location or work location, if it is straightforward to drop your child off in the mornings for instance.

On the surface of things - the quality of a school is mostly determined by results which are available each and every year in all of the standard newspapers. It is a simple matter of comparing one schools results next to one another from the Warwick locale. Of course as everybody knows data are generally flawed to some degree or other. Children's results for a particular school may be twisted for lots of different reasons

  • 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 results.

Ofsted is an formal body which writes reports on schools in the Warwick area as well as the rest of the UK. In a nutshell these reports will declare how the school is doing, as well as showing that the school is improving or not. Bear in mind your offspring is to be expected to attend a Warwick Primary or Warwick Secondary school for several years, so it is important to realize if a school is on the way up or down.

Using a schools bureaucrat reports and results is a fine opening mode of weeding out the wheat from the chaff, after that it's very important you go and pay a visit to the potential new school on their open day. This is a good system to find out more about the schools policies, its culture and it will also allow you to put questions directly to the head of the school.
