Transitions

Moving from primary to secondary school is an exciting and nerve-wracking time for pupils and parents alike. Leopold aims to play a supportive role in this process to facilitate a smooth transition for all our students. For example, all Year 6 parents are invited to a personal interview with the Headteacher or Deputy Headteacher to discuss suitable schools for their children.

Children born between 1st September 2005 and 31st August 2006 will start secondary school in September 2017. Parents should be aware that the deadline for applications is 31st October 2016.

Pupils who plan to attend a Brent secondary school have a number of options from which to choose, and may find Brent council’s Apply On Time For School guide useful.

If you do not live in Brent, but would like your child to attend a school within the area, you will still need to apply to your local council.

Offers from secondary schools will be released nationally on 1st March 2017. Responses must be received by 15th March 2017 for your child’s place to be confirmed.
