Vixifox replied to jawood67's topic in EducationHi I am a high school teacher in a school here for 5 yrs and was previously in UK and I agree with ajcooper above. UK curriculum is ahead of the ones here unless you are in one of the top schools here, however, in UK most govt schools are different and depends on your area and where you live as to the quality of the school. A very good school tends to raise house prices well over their real true value / cost because parents want to get into the catchment area for best schools it drives up the cost of living. The best schools though may not support students who are transitioning from AU. Ideally find out about them before you get there . When you have chosen where you will live look at Ofsted school ratings and talk to those schools as ajcooper said above to find out what they are prepared to do. Primary tend to care more at the social level, but at secondary not so much generally as teens can be independent , so you must focus on the football teams and sports groups to help him settle in.
