Secondary School Choices

Information on Secondary Schools for Year 5 Parents

The deadline for school applications is 31st October each year, meaning that the secondary school choice will be made early in Year 6. For grammar schools, the 11+ entrance exam is taken in Sept/Oct of Year 6, so some planning may be required whilst your child is in Year 5.

Our feeder school is Clyst Vale Community College but there are other options in the area. Transport if provided free to Clyst Vale, this may not be the case for other schools.
