In-year transfer

​Moving to a different school at any time other than the usual admission to Reception class, transfer to junior school, or transfer to secondary school, is known as an ‘in-year transfer’.

Children may transfer to the school throughout the year provided that the school has places available and we can meet the needs of the child.  Families should apply directly to the school for in-year transfers.
