Secondary Transfers 2023

Primary to secondary school transfer

If your child is in Year 6 you need to start choosing a secondary school. I know this can be a daunting process but there is lots of help available. In addition to the information and events below, I will hold a meeting on Thursday 14th September at 3.45pm to help you through the process. Please be aware some schools require additional forms or may have specialist places available with interviews/auditions taking place before the October deadline.

Fortunately, Camden has great secondary schools. You can find out more by reading the brochures, attending the Moving on events, watching the short school films and by visiting on open days. Please take time to have a look, as a first step the latest guide to secondary schools in Camden can be accessed here
