Aspiration, Application, Achievement
Parents can ask to change schools at any stage of their child’s education and there may be a number of valid reasons for doing so, such as moving house. However, changing schools is an issue that needs to be given serious consideration as it is not always the answer and can have a detrimental impact on a child’s education.
Before applying to change schools, you are advised to discuss your options with your child’s current Headteacher in the first instance, in order to resolve any issues that may have arisen. There may be strong educational reasons why a transfer should not take place, which you will need to consider.
