Transfer to junior school

The transfer to junior school admission round for September 2018 is for children in their last year at infant school (aged 7+ on 1 September 2018). These pupils are deemed “due to transfer” which is a term used in admissions rules.

Only children who are in their last year (Year 2) at an Infant or First school will be considered “due to transfer”. Children who are attending a primary school on the opening day of the admission round are not considered as due to transfer.
