Progression into secondary school is an important stage in your child’s education. This means that it should be considered carefully.
We recommend that, firstly, you begin the process of choosing a school in Year 5 as the submission of preference must be submitted in October of Year 6, so this gives you a whole year to think things through.
Secondly, you should know all of your options. Click here to see the closest secondary schools to our school.
The third thing to bear in mind is that it may be beneficial to not only visit these schools during any open days that they might hold but also when they are working to gain an insight into how that school operates.
Finally, our last piece of advice is to fill in the names of your top three schools, in order of preference, when completing your admission paper work. If you only fill in the name of your top choice and that school happens to be at capacity then the school that your child will end up attending will be selected for you.
We hope that information has be useful and good luck!
