Transferring from primary to secondary school in September 2021

If your child is due to start secondary school in September 2021, you will receive a letter from your current primary school in September 2020.  The letter will include all the important information on how to apply for your child's secondary school place.

We have produced a booklet to explain the application process and how you can get more information about schools.

Please note, the usual closing date of 31st October for Year 7 applications has been extended by 1 week to 7th November 2020. This is due to the impact of Covid-19 which has caused delays for some schools in preparing assessments and exams as part of their admission criteria.

All dates, times and arrangements for the annual admissions timeline, aptitude assessments and open evenings are subject to change dependent on social distancing regulations due to Covid-19.  We advise you to visit the school websites for the latest information or contact schools nearer the time.
