Starting secondary school
Moving onto secondary school is an exciting time for your child; it represents an important milestone in their academic journey. We offer advice and guidance about the transfer process and the Headteacher is happy to meet with parents and carer's individually to discuss this matter. If you wish to make an appointment, please contact the school office.
If your child is in Year 6 (born between 1 September 2006 and 31 August 2007) you will need to make an online application via eadmissions portal for them to transfer to secondary school in September 2018. The Closing date for making applications is 31 October 2017.
Parents who have children with SEN statements or EHC plans are not required to complete the Common Application Form. The transfer from primary to secondary will be managed by the Local Authority's Special Educational Needs Team.

Finding out more about schools
We advise parents and carers to look carefully at the different options for secondary education when your child is in Year 4. There are lots of sources of information about schools including Ofsted reports, performance data and Ofsted data comparing the achievement and statistics of an institution. Looking at the school's own website also gives you a useful overview of the institution before you arrange to visit on an open day.
