Moving onto secondary school is an exciting and important phase in the life of any year six pupil and their parents/carers. In October each year, parents of year six children apply for secondary school. Online applications are made by 31st October. If parents are uncertain and need help, they will be invited to meet with the Head Teacher to discuss their child’s secondary education options.

Children with Education, Health and Care Plans
The process for children who have an Education, Health and Care Plan or are issued with a draft plan by 21 October 2022 is different. You will receive an application form from the Education, Health and Care Planning (EHCP) team. You should use this form to list the schools you prefer for your child. The deadline for submitting preferences for pupils with EHCP differs from the general admission date. School SENDCo can help you with this process.
