Secondary Transfer 

We are aware that secondary transfer for our current Year 6 children is likely to look very different this year.

Usually we would be advising everyone to visit as many schools as they can with their children, so that you can find out about the schools.  Sadly this is unlikely to be the case this year, but we are here to help!

Thank you to everyone who came to our virtual meeting on Wednesday 30th September where we heard from a number of local secondary schools.  If you were not able to make it click below to see what was said:
