Selecting a School

  • Early planning is advisable; allow at least 18 months
  • Identify the type of educational environment that would best suit the needs of your child: single sex, co-educational, highly selective or a school for the all-rounder
  • Special requirements: English as a Second Language, Dyslexia, ADHD, supported learning, medical conditions
  • Do you require the school to be in any particular area of the UK? Perhaps near family or friends with access to an airport.
  • Inform the present school of your intentions; the Principal will be required to write a reference
  • Have copies of school reports available
  • Be clear about if and when you are able to visit the schools selected. We advise families to visit three or four schools during term time, to ensure that you see the schools ‘in action'.

The whole point of education is to prepare and equip children to thrive when they leave school. Life does not keep boys and girls separate. Universities, the workforce and pupils’ future lives will not feature a division of sexes.
