Moving on to Secondary School

Children remain at our school until the end of Year 6, when they transfer to a secondary school. On average, over the last four years, 56 per cent of the year group have taken part in the Kent selection procedure (Kent Test) at the start of Year 6 to assess their suitability for grammar school. Of those, 55 per cent were deemed suitable for a grammar school education. 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. Over the past few years our Year 6s have been offered places at the following schools:
