Gorseinon Schools

Each year parents of children needing to go to a Gorseinon school in West Glamorgan for the first time, or moving up to a new school or college are having to make tough decisions as regards their child's upcoming education requirements. Which school in Gorseinon should I place my son/daughter? It's a testing judgment to make as it can have a profound positive/negative effect on how your child develops for the duration of childhood and for that reason a massive consequence on that son/daughter as he or she passes into maturity.

So how do you choose a unique school from the Gorseinon region?

  • From time to time it is simple if your son/daughter already has a sibling or siblings who will be at the establishment when your other child starts or older siblings before attended the school.
  • Your proximity to the school.
  • You or your child has a special education needs. You may perhaps want to send off your offspring to a specialised school to look after your loved one.
  • Faith Schools
  • Your child attended a linked nursery/primary/secondary school.
  • Entry exam or selection test (grammar schools and other establishments select a fraction of their pupils on educational ability)
  • Assessment or audition (if the school awards a certain 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 proximity of the school to your home or work location, if it's easy to drop your offspring off in the mornings for example.

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

  • Quality of intake to the school
  • Different 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.

By a schools bureaucrat reports and results is a good early way of weeding out the wheat from the chaff, after that it's fundamental you go and go to the potential new school on their open day. This is a good way to find out more about the schools policies, its ethos and it will also allow you to put questions straight to the head of the school.
