The best way to choose a secondary school for your child is to visit as many as possible. All schools arrange open days or open evenings early in the autumn term – 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 Holland Park School, Kensington Aldridge Academy, Chelsea Academy, Twyford Church of England High School, Ark Burlington Danes Academy, St Marylebone School (girls only) and the recently renamed All Saints Catholic School (co-educational from September 2018).
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.
