Mums of School Kids

As a parent, you want the best for your child in everything they do. Whether it's getting the best possible doctor, to make sure they have everything they need, to making sure they are getting the best possible education.

It's only human nature and a paternal instinct.

Mummy to School Kids

If you're a mom to school kids then you would have been through, or are about to decide where you want your children to go when they have finished primary school or have finished high school and are looking to go onto further education.

This is where a tough decision will arise, as you'll have to decide where your child will get the best education going forward to their GCSE's and/or A Levels.

Some parents decide to sends their children to a local school where they know their child will already have friends, and some decide to send their kids to an Independent School. Both of these options are fine, and neither is better than the other, it just comes down to personal preference.

Deciding Where They Should Go

The deiciding part is always the hardest, this is because the decision will massively effect your childs education some argue that a state education is perfectly fine and you are at no disadvantage to those who go to a private school or boarding school if you just apply yourself.

There are those however that believe the best possible education for their children lies in a independent school or boarding school. Again, this is just personal preference and shouldn't massively impact your decision making process.

There are some valid arguments for Private and Boarding schools though, for example, it could be argued that independent and boarding schools can tailor their curriculums more towards what suits your child more and then make sure they get the best possible results for your child. It is also arguable that independent schools dedicate more time to keeping your child fit by encoruaging and pushing the children towards joining sports clubs and teams.

Not An Easy Decision

No matter what your final decision is, it won't be an easy one by any stretch of the imagination. You will need to consider location and distance from your home, the easist/quickest route to the school, if the schools has fee's and if those fee's are too expensive. These are just the surface questions you'll want answers to before deciding where your child should go.

You may also want to consider what your childs preferences are becuase if your child doesn't like where they're going they'll grow to despise it and probably won't get the best from it.
