Does your family have a keen interest in sports? If that’s the case, you may possibly want to take a closer look at your children’s school.
Public schools in the United Kingdom are often undervaluing the importance of sports.
I’ve seen it myself how several public schools here in the area only dedicate one or two hours per week for sports and physical activity, which in my opinion is far insufficient.
This can be especially disheartening if your children are interested in participating in team sports such as soccer. Many schools we looked at hadn’t anything to offer in that regards.
The other problem with our public schools is that sporting facilities can often be outdated and poorly maintained, if they even have such facilities, that is. You would have to look far and beyond to find a good public school that has a decent running track, an Olympic-sized pool or a well maintained soccer field.
If your children are into sports, you may want to consider some of our private schools as an alternative. Our family found that most private schools have a much higher priority on sports. Likewise, their sports sacilities where much better maintained. The most important thing is that private schools often have a lot more to offer if your children are interested in team sports. The children can sign up for soccer teams or fencing courses, something we had a very hard time with public schools.
