Schooling and Moving
Moving frequently can be very disruptive, especially for children who must not only leave their friends, but also move to a new school. This can be difficult for a number of reasons ranging from differences in curriculum to finding the right school for children with special needs. Whether you have decided to send your child(ren) to boarding school, or for them to receive schooling in the local area, it is always advisable to start researching as soon as possible as this will give you more time to deal with any problems that may arise.
Education in the UK
Once you know you are moving you will obviously want to find out details of the best schools in the area. Making the right choice for you and your child will involve a lot of research and planning. There will be a number of important pieces of information you will wish to know in addition to the school location, such as curriculum and current performance.
The Children's Education Advisory Service (CEAS) can provide information, advice and support relating to admissions to UK schools. CEAS can advise on matters relating to children with special needs and provide assistance with admission appeals should you be unable to get your child into the school of your choice.
