Transfer to secondary school

Children transfer to secondary school at the end of Year 6 when they are 11. Application forms and information about secondary schools are provided at meetings held at the beginning of that year, in the Autumn Term. Parents and carers are encouraged to attend one of these meetings to discuss the process.

Parents are required to list up to six choices for secondary school. Admission criteria vary, but siblings, proximity to the school and selection tests are the most significant factors in the allocation of places. The Year 6 teachers can advise and support parents throughout the application process and will help with appeals should they become necessary.
