Year 6 Secondary Transition
It is vital that parents understand the process and timescales involved with secondary transfer. We therefore hold a meeting for the parents/carers of all our Y6 children in September each year; in this meeting we go through the steps you need to take to make sure your application is made on time. There is always a representative from the Lewisham Admissions Team to answer any questions you may have. We always invite local secondary schools to attend this meeting.
- For more information please see the Lewisham Council website.
- You can also sign up to receive weekly emails about the secondary school admissions process using this link https://r1.dotmailer-surveys.com/d7402e3-404ptedd
