We usually advise when searching for the right school for your child, it is important to think about their needs and interests - how would the school help him or her? What is not working at their current school? Think about what type of school environment would help them most and involve your children in choosing a school where they will feel comfortable and supported, as well as interested in what they have to offer. Contact the schools you’re interested in to ask what they might suggest could benefit your child and enhance their learning experience, and any other questions or concerns you may have.
