Finding the right school when you relocate for work

29 October, 2018

When relocating for work, one of the biggest decisions to make is choosing a suitable school for your child. This is an emotive subject and for many people can be the deciding factor on whether they accept the assignment or not.

One of the first things to do is research – doing a search of the internet first of all can really help you understand exactly what it is you want from a school. There are so many great schools in the UK, which can often make the whole process seem very overwhelming, so making an initial list on things you’re looking for from a school is a great place to start.

It’s also a good idea to research the different types of school education you want for your child whether that be a state, grammar or international school. Looking at league tables and exam results can also help to narrow your decision on the right school.

Once you have settled on a budget and found the right location it’s easier to narrow down your school choices as ideally you want somewhere within comfortable travelling distance from your home.

No amount of information you can gather about schools can substitute for visiting in person. Visiting in term time makes it easier to gain a better understanding of the culture of the school and the quality of education it provides.

Careful planning and good advice can help to ease the stress of the whole process a little bit. At Clearview Relocation we understand how important finding a suitable school can be when relocating which is why our specialist education consultants are always available to help.
