Secondary Education


Children remain at our school until the end of Year 6, when they transfer to a secondary school.

Due to our geographical location, children leave us to attend many different secondary schools. We have good links with all of the schools which helps to ensure a smooth transition for the children and their families.



11+ Kent Selection

30% – 40% of our Year 6 pupils sit the 11+ tests in September to assess their suitability for grammar school.

In the 2015-16 academic year, 69% of those sitting the Kent Test from Wateringbury Primary School were deemed suitable for a grammar school education and were offered places at grammar schools.

In 2016 our Year 6 Leavers were offered places at the following schools:


Bennett Memorial Diocesan School

Mascalls School

Hillview School for Girls

New Line Learning Academy

Hugh Christie Technology College

Oakwood Park Grammar School

Invicta Grammar School
