The secondary allocation procedure is sent out to parents by the Chief Education Officer at the start of the child’s final year at Primary School. Foundation schools are independent of the L.E.A. and will also send details of their admission procedure.
We have good relationships with our secondary schools and encourage links between the two phases. We aim for each child to have acquired the skills and attitudes needed to meet the challenge of secondary schooling. Making the right choice is not always easy. Please contact us if you would like any guidance.
For more information regarding the transfer to secondary school please go the Gloucestershire County Council website
