Upcoming Events

Choosing your child’s secondary school is an important decision.  We recommend that parents and children visit the local schools prior to making final decisions. Secondary schools hold open days/evenings in September/October.

During the summer term of Year 5, families are given the opportunity to decide whether they would like their child to complete the PESE (11+) test which takes place at the beginning of Year 6. In order to make an informed decision, meetings are held in June with the class teacher to discuss suitable options.

To enable our children to become accustomed to their new secondary school, they enjoy an induction period in July during which time they attend lessons and familiarise themselves with the layout of the school.
