Finding and choosing a school

Choosing a school

Once you know which schools are near you, you will want to get as much information as you can about them. This will give you a better idea of which school might best suit your child.

You might think about things like:

  • visiting the schools
  • reading the schools' prospectuses
  • reading the schools' most recent inspection reports
  • reading school performance tables
