Year 6 Transfer to Secondary School in September 2022

 

Friday 24th September 2021

The children have been eagerly discovering more information today about the application process to secondary schools.  They have located schools on maps, measured distances to them from their homes and explored school websites to check when their open evenings are being held.

The Year 6 team are looking forward to answering any questions you have about the secondary application process during the workshop on Monday 27th September at 2:00pm.

In preparation for the meeting please take some time to visit the following website from Birmingham City Council.
