“It’s one of the prime factors when many people come to us with particular needs,” said Dan Barclay, Associate Partner at Tiverton Seddons. “School is an important part of family life and many of our clients need to be close to the school of their choice and we are all aware of the boundaries of each school.”

Throughout Devon there are many fantastic schools, and if you are relocating to the area it may be difficult to choose one, with all the options available to you. Choosing the right school for your child is incredibly important, as your children should enjoy their day whilst also feeling comfortable and relaxed in the school’s atmosphere. So, with this in mind, you may be considering what constitutes a good school.

There are many things that contribute to a good school; by doing your research and speaking to the school in question before you commit will be a good place to start. Talk to the headmaster and see what activities they run in and out of school time. Does the school encourage curiosity, a thirst for knowledge, adventure and wonder? Do other parents recommend the school?

Remember to take your research online as well; school Ofsted reports are readily available on the internet for you to review the standard of the school.
