School Open Day

As the school open day for your child nears you want to make sure that you are prepared – open days are an excellent opportunity for you to learn more about the school that your child will be attending and also to introduce him or her to their new learning environment. This brief article will tell you some important issues that you should look into during this important day.
Different schools offer different curriculums and you want to make sure that you are choosing the right one for your child. It should be one which is designed to cater to your child’s strengths and help them improve in subjects that they are not do good at. You may want to have a discussion with your son or daughter about what kind of curriculum they are interested in pursuing – if they choose it they are likely to perform better than if it is forced on them.
Living arrangements
If your child is going off to boarding school its vital to look into what kind of living arrangements the school has to offer. How much personal space do they get? Are the boarding houses supervised at all times? If your child will be living off campus how will they get to and from their classes, and what does the school do to make sure that students are supervised and safe when they are not on campus? You should also look into the meals and make sure that they get enough to eat and the diet is balanced.
Make sure that you take your child to a school that has good teachers – they should have a track record for success without pushing students too hard.
The Cambridge Centre for Sixth Form Studies has open days every year that you shouldn’t miss. They offer a great curriculum that is taught by highly qualified and supportive teachers.
