Finding out about a school

Some suggestions about what to ask

Can I get any information before visiting a school?   Back to First Page   What should I ask during the visit?

How do I arrange a visit?

Going to School

Once you have a list of possible schools, you should contact them to make an appointment.

Many schools also hold open evenings for parents.

Ask who you will meet at the school and how much time they will be able to spend with you.

Before you visit:
Bullet Point
Think carefully about whether you want to take your child with you on the first visit (you could discuss this with the school)
Bullet Point
Decide if you want to take someone along with you. This may be a friend, relative or Independent Parental Supporter. They can help in discussing your impressions afterwards
Bullet Point
Consider whether you would like to have a guided tour. You will get a better feel for the school if you do this in school hours when the children are there
