Decisions about where your child goes to school are very personal and can be difficult. There are Practical considerations, such as how does the location of the school, cost or difficulty of travelling to and from the school, and public transport options affect you? Where are your child’s friends going to school? Many parents worry about things like class size or whether a single-sex or coeducational school is best.
