Secondary School Transfers

Children are thoroughly prepared academically for their next school.

Through regular tracking and assessment, the Head Teacher and Director of Academic Studies have a thorough knowledge of the children.

Parents are informed of the range of schools within both the maintained and independent sectors and are guided in their choices. The children are provided with clear personal targets within the classroom and the skills required to enable them to participate in entrance examinations.

After-school sessions are held to assist with the 11+ process and the children have regular past papers to practise.  Pupils also undergo interview practice with a visiting professional.  We also encourage Maple Walk alumni to visit to talk about their experience of senior school.

"We are encouraging each child by the time they leave us to be finding out what they are interested in, what they are good at...we want to bring out the best in every child." Gill Sinclair, Year 5 Teacher and Head of Pastoral Care.

In 2012 we had our first year of Year 6 leavers. Below we show the most recent offers received by our pupils.
