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.
Parents who have children with 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.
Secondary school applications open on 1st September and 31st October is the deadline.
