St William's Catholic Primary School

Transition to High School

Almost as soon as the children begin Year 6, they will start receiving letters inviting them and their parents to Open Evenings at the local high schools.
It's important to visit the different schools and to complete the relevant forms, requesting a place at the school you prefer promptly, as the places available may be taken and then you will be allocated a different choice.
