Transfer to Secondary School
The majority of our pupils normally transfer to Bassingbourn Village College (BVC) at the end of year 6. We maintain good relationships with BVC and seek opportunities for children to become familiar with the staff and environment through visits and events across years 5 and 6. Our teachers hold regular meetings with BVC staff to discuss curriculum continuity and pastoral care. We also have positive relationships with other local schools where pupils may transfer and again, staff meet to discuss individual needs prior to transfer.
To support transfer to secondary school we aim to provide a range of opportunities throughout their primary years to meet peers in the other primary schools on a social or sporting basis. In Years 5 and 6, all pupils spend two days at BVC working on a joint project, enabling them to find their way around and get to know some staff and pupils. It also provides an opportunity to experience some of the new activities they will encounter.
For more information and application forms, please visit the Cambridgeshire County Council website. Please note that you should ensure you apply for a school place at a secondary school when your child is in Year 6, and no later than 31st October. If you live outside Cambridgeshire, you should apply for a school place through the Local Authority you pay council tax to, irrespective of which school you are applying for.
