Transferring to Secondary

Whilst pupils from Wickford Junior School have transferred to several schools, both selective and comprehensive, within and outside the local area, the majority of our pupils transfer to Beauchamps or Bromfords School.

A booklet giving details of Secondary Education in Essex is provided by the County in the Autumn Term of Year 6.This provides information about the schools, selection details and dates for Open Evenings and a form, which parents must complete and return to the Area Office stating their preferred school.

Some schools provide us with copies of their prospectus and our school office will be pleased to help you, but further details can always be obtained from the schools direct.

We liaise with the secondary schools chosen by parents, to ensure that children’s needs are made known to their new school before the formal transfer of pupil records.

Parents are encouraged to make arrangements for their children to visit their new school.

We maintain links with the staff of local feeder schools to ensure smooth transfer from one school to another.

The deadline for applications is the end of October.
