Finding a Good School
Every parent wants the best for their children and that includes their education.
Their are many guides available to "weigh up" local schools and I will try to compose a list here of some of the places you could find the information you need. Please note - some of these websites will charge for this information whereas the government websites are free.
A free government site giving a comprehensive description of the school choice process, the law and your rights.
A search "engine" by the government to find schools around the country and includes inspection reports.
A free site, easy to find schools but not necessarily with reviews about particular schools.
A subscription site, but very well worth a look.
Read the Parent Power article and use the "school finder" software.
School tables for 2008 - compare schools by their results (but remember that results don't tell the whole story).
