What to look out for when choosing an independent school

Naturally, there are some fairly obvious things to look at when deciding on the right independent school for your son or daughter. For sure, one thing to look at is that the prospective school has achieved a satisfactory standard at inspection. The Independent Schools Inspectorate works in partnership with OFSTED and, when possible, ISI and OFSTED inspections are conducted at the same time. Each inspection team produces its own report, which is sent to all parents of children at the school. This report gives a great deal of information for the parents of prospective pupils at the school as well and this should therefore be one of the first things that you will look at.

However, you also really need to consider the options regarding single-sex or co-educational schools too. Do you prefer your child to be taught with children of the opposite sex or do you feel they would benefit from being taught in an environment where they are with children of the same sex only? There are arguments for and against both types of education and what suits one child may not suit another child. You may feel that your child would make more progress without the distraction of the opposite sex. On the other hand, you may believe it is more natural if boys and girls are educated together and mix with each other throughout their school years.

For some parents the desire to have their son or daughter taught in a single-sex school is the main reason that they choose a private nursery, junior or secondary school, but for others they prefer their children to be taught at a private school that caters for both boys and girls such as this one - visit school website. It should be noted though that in many parts of the country the private education sector offers the only real single-sex choice for parents who want it.

Once this important factor has been decided upon there are some other questions that you might want to ask such as... What extra-curricular activities are offered to pupils?, Do children have ample opportunity to interact with students of other ages from other years? ...and so on.
