If you live in a small town you might be choosing between two or three schools.
If you live in a city there could be twenty or more possibilities.
This website is designed to help you and your family choose the right school for you.
Choosing schools can be stressful for adults as they want to make the right choice for you. You might have already overheard conversations about it so it's useful for you to understand what's going on.
This website has been prepared with the help of the senior management and Year 7 induction staff of a secondary school. Everyone involved has been through the secondary transfer process as a parent and understands how stressful it can be.
Use the site and its links to gain a fuller understanding of the schools you're considering (or considering selling your house to avoid) and try to keep an open mind - hopefully you'll be pleasantly surprised.
There are also links to free help and advice if you don't get what you want.
Finally... school is important of course but don't underestimate the importance of home life in a child's development. Every school has its success stories and with you behind them your child will be one of them.
(If you find big sloppy kisses, nose wiping and asking if you've remembered to change your pants embarrassing now there's bad news. Your parents will continue to find ways to show you up in front of your friends until you're well into your twenties. If anything they get better at it). Back to business
