For our Year 6 children and their families managing the process of selecting a secondary school of choice for September 2019 is a very important time. You will by now be actively considering your choices by visiting schools and viewing websites and prospectuses.
Before applying for secondary school places for your child, research the schools that you and your child are interested in. You can find information from a range of sources, including:
- Types of secondary school in Southwark: southwark.gov.uk/schools-and-education/school-admissions/secondary-admissions/types-of-secondary-schools-in-southwark
- How to apply for secondary schools in Southwark:
- school open days and evenings (open sessions): http://www.southwark.gov.uk/schools-and-education/school-admissions/secondary-admissions/secondary-schools-open-days-and-evenings
Southwark’s guidance booklet ‘Starting secondary school in Southwark 2019/20’ is available electronically though the http://www.southwark.gov.uk/schools-and-education/school-admissions/secondary-schools/applying-for-a-secondary-school-place website. This booklet is also available electronically on our school website under the ‘Our Parents’ tab. All secondary schools offer open days so that prospective students and their families can view the facilities, talk to teachers and hear the Headteacher’s vision and ethos. Many will offer morning visits as well and this is a great opportunity to see the school in action.
