Secondary Transfer

At the age of eleven the children transfer to a number of different secondary schools. Each September, we hold an information evening on Secondary Transfer to support parents with the process.

We encourage parents of Year 5 children to visit the secondary school in which they may be interested without their children in the first instance, and to take their children to see a ‘short list’ of preferred secondary schools, for evening viewings, when their child is in Year 6.

In July 2017, we had 60 Year 6 pupils, who moved to the following schools:
