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 them? 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. Some schools will do virtual tours for interested families who live far away. Contact the school to ask what they might suggest could benefit your children and enhance their learning experience, as well as what you might need to know in transferring to that school, and any other questions or concerns you may have.
