Secondary Transfer

When your child reaches the age of 11 there are a range of schools to consider for their secondary education.

Meetings are organised by the headteacher and the class teacher to guide you through the process.

Both members of staff are also always available to meet and discuss individual children

Each year Wandsworth Borough Council produce a booklet “Choose a Wandsworth Secondary School” which guides parents through the process and on-line application.

For more information about schools in the area log on to Wandsworth council – Admissions website.

Supporting transition for pupils with SEN

Children with EHCP do not apply for secondary schools through the typical application process. Instead, the Special Needs Assessment Section (SNAS) ask you for your preferences and then consult with schools on your behalf. Pupils with an EHCP do not have to sit the Wandsworth Secondary Admissions test.

Please see the attached document for further information: Section 3 Wandsworth council – Admissions website and Moving from Primary to Secondary with an EHCP leaflet.

Catholic Secondary Schools

St Joseph’s is proud that its Y6 leavers secure places at a range of outstanding secondary schools. We love to hear from our former pupils about what they have achieved on the next stage of their educational journey.
