    When it comes to the education of our children we take many things for granted. What most families do, they will choose a school close to their home and think that everything will be right. Most families when they choose a school do not really put a lot of effort into researching what a school offers for their children.

    This is alarming because we see that a lot of schools in the United Kingdom can be severely lacking when it comes to education standards once we take a closer look at them.

    What things should you look at before you sign your children up for a school?

    Ask them about their average class sizes. As a general rule, once a class exceeds more than 30 children you should be wary. Smaller class sizes such as with a maximum of 20 pupils would not only benefit the children but also the teachers. It’s clear that a teacher can better focus on those children who need some extra help when classes are smaller.

    Ask the school what they are offering to your children beyond their standard classes.

    How is the school when it comes to sports or music?

    If your children love sports, a school with a priority in such activities, maybe a school that has its own sporting facilities and sports team would be the much better choice.

    If your children love music and arts you should make sure that the school can offer them what they like. This could be classes such as where they can learn to play an instrument, singing classes, painting and similar.

    You should definitely not assume that any school will be equally suitable for your children. If you cannot find a good public school that can offer your children what they want or need, consider one of the many independent, private schools in the United Kingdom. The Kingshottschool, one of the best Prep Schools Hertfordshire is one of them.
