SECONDARY SCHOOL TRANSITION INFORMATION
Transition to Secondary School Information
(Year 6 to Year 7)
Families will be making choices for their children's transition to Secondary School in the very near future. This page will be updated regularly (as soon as we receive any relevant information) to help guide you through this process, so keep checking back. In the meantime, take a look at the links to useful websites below. You must apply with your choice of schools before Friday 15th October 2021 on the E-Admissions website. We will be undertaking CATs tests for the Year 6 children the week beginning 11th October 2021. No further preparation for Secondary School transfer will take place at this time as the CATs tests will assess individual children's learning types.
If you have any questions at this point, please speak with Miss Spencer.
