Secondary Transfer

Making the move to secondary school is a milestone in every child's life. As with any change, it needs to be prepared in advance.  Therefore, during term 6, Year 6 complete a range of transition activities, visit their new school and are visited by a teacher from their new school. Throughout Year 5 and 6, children have the opportunity to discover what a secondary school is like because of links we have made. This might include workshops, pantos, DT days, sports days and more. 

Kent operates a system of selection for Grammar schools.  Approximately 25% of children across Kent gain a Grammar school place. Please be aware that this year the Kent test is changing.
