Moving to Secondary School

 

In the September when your child moves in to year 6 you will receive information from Gloucestershire County Council (GCC) regarding secondary school choice, and how to apply, when you can state up to four preferences.

GCC have an informative section on their website www.gloucestershire.gov.uk/schooladmissions and this will also give details of open mornings run in the autumn term at secondary schools.  You may find it useful to attend open mornings when your child is in year 5, so that you give yourself plenty of time to make a decision, as secondary school preferences normally need to be submitted by the end of October.

Representatives from local secondary schools come and meet with Y6s to give them a flavour of their school, and they sometimes bring along one or two past pupils to answer any questions.

PSHE lessons also support the transition process for the children.
