The best way to choose a secondary school for your child is to visit as many schools as possible. All schools arrange open days or open evenings early in the autumn term.  Please look at the schools’ websites to find out more. You can also talk to parents of children who have already moved on. Popular schools for our pupils in recent years include Chelsea Academy (with whom we have close links), Holland Park School, Kensington Aldridge Academy, Twyford Church of England High School, Ark Burlington Danes Academy, St Marylebone School (girls only) and All Saints Catholic School.

We work with local schools to try and make the transition as smooth as possible for the children. Year 6 staff members, and sometimes outside agencies, also run workshops for Year 6 pupils in the summer term to help children prepare for the changes ahead.
