Midhurst Schools

Every year parents of kids requiring to go to a Midhurst school in West Sussex for the first time, or moving up to a new school or college are having to make tough decisions on the subject of their child's future education needs. Which school in Midhurst should I situate my son/daughter? It is a testing choice to make as it can have a profound positive/negative outcome on how your child develops during childhood and consequently a gigantic consequence on that child as he or she passes into adulthood and thereafter.

So how do you decide upon a particular school from the Midhurst locale?

  • At times it is effortless if your child already has a sibling or siblings who will be at the school when your other child starts or grown-up siblings earlier attended the school.
  • Your closeness to the school.
  • You or your child has a disability. You may perhaps need to send off your offspring to a specialised school to cater for your child.
  • Faith Schools
  • Your son/daughter went to a connected nursery/primary/secondary school.
  • Entry exam or selection test (grammar schools and some others go for a fraction of their pupils on academic ability)
  • Assessment or audition (if the school awards a specified number of spaces on the basis of aptitude for selected subjects)

On the whole most parents decisions are based on the quality of the school and the closeness of the school to your locality or work location, if it's easy to drop your child off in the mornings for instance.

On the surface of things - the class of a school is more often than not determined by results which are available 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 Midhurst region. Of course as every person knows stats are generally flawed to some degree or other. Children's results for a particular school may be twisted for lots of different reasons

  • Condition of intake to the school
  • 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 performance.

Ofsted is an official body which writes reports on schools in the Midhurst area as well as the rest of the UK. In a nutshell these reports will express how the school is doing, as well as showing that the school is improving or not. Bear in mind your son/daughter is expected to attend a Midhurst Primary or Midhurst Secondary school for a number of years, so it is imperative to recognize if a school is on the way up or down.

Using a schools bureaucrat reports and results is a decent initial mode of weeding out the wheat from the chaff, after that it is fundamental you go and visit the potential new school on their open day. This is a good means 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.
