What to look for when choosing a senior school

Education has become so expensive, so don't settle for less, whether you have to pay for it or not. My dad used to tell me how important education is, always accompanying his statement with the phrase "a reader is a leader.".
When I was a kid, I disliked going to school since all I wanted to do was play, but since my parents insisted that I must have an education, I had no choice but to comply with their wishes, which I don't regret. My late grandma used to feel so bad for me each time I get so sad about going to school, but in the end, because education is so vital, we should make it a priority to encourage people to further their education in any field that interests them.

In recent times, different educational systems have sufficed, so parents or guardians are worried about what they can expect of their child if they send them to an educational environment, which is why you need to look for the following things when choosing a senior school:

  • Observe the interactions between the teaching personnel and the students. Are they warm and inviting, or cold and dismissive?
  • Have a conversation with the teachers about the lesson plan to determine how involved they are and how well they understand it.
  • Check out the facilities, such as the library, the cafeteria, and the computer room. 
  • Take a look at the GCSE statistics they provide. Do subjects like math and English make the cut? Are vocational training programmes included in the curriculum?
The truth is that different people have different things they are looking for when searching for a secondary school. 

Find out which municipality or county you are eligible to apply to.

If you live in a city, you can be right on the border between many boroughs, giving you a wide range of options from which to choose. On paper, you have the freedom to apply anywhere you want. In practice, aspects such as proximity to the school will be relevant; however, it is important to keep this in mind if you happen to live on the boundary between two different education authorities.

Use search engines to search for schools; for instance, if you wish to concentrate your search on Leicester, search for the best secondary schools in Leicester. You will receive a list of the top-recommended secondary schools in Leicester.

Check and study reports

These are the observations made by an inspector during a day visit to the school; while they may not provide an accurate image of what the school is like, nevertheless, it is valuable information. Also, you can inquire about the school in the neighborhood where it is located.

Distance between home and the school
Students who live more than 20 miles from their schools will have to get up very early and will not be able to return home until quite late, which will make their school days significantly longer. That's fine for people on their way to work, but do you think that a student can handle this? In general, this isn't good for a school student. Don't assume your child will get free transportation from school until you've checked with the school.

If you have visited a large number of schools, you can create a list of your top choices and go back to visit them, just like you would if you were looking for a new home. A second visit will often show you things, both good and bad, that you didn't notice the first time.

Don't forget to speak with as many other parents and students as you can about the school you are considering. Don't make the mistake of thinking that one student's experience is typical of all students because education is not a uniform system. Above all, strive to make this a fulfilling experience. Have your child see it as one of the first important decisions they will participate in making for their future.
