Before submitting a Year 7 application we strongly recommend all families read the Autumn 2023 edition of the local authorities ‘Starting Secondary School’ guide and find out information about the schools you are interested in. Our borough has a wonderful range of schools to choose between and it is important you find a school that is a good fit for your child. Open evenings can be a really helpful way of learning about schools.
