TRANSFER TO SECONDARY SCHOOL
Children whose 11th birthday is on or before 31st August will transfer to Secondary education commencing in the September. Transfer for children living in North Yorkshire is normally to Richmond School. However, children from Over Dinsdale will automatically transfer to Northallerton School. Parents may exercise their right of choice in this matter and transfer to other secondary schools if places are available. Children living in Hurworth will normally transfer to the secondary school in Hurworth.
There is excellent liaison between Croft School and all the local secondary schools. To ease transfer the children receive visits in school from secondary school staff and are invited to spend days in their new school as part of their induction.
A letter is sent home to parents in the Autumn Term asking for their preference of secondary schools. Open evenings are held in the Autumn Term of your child’s final year of primary school. Parents who are undecided are welcome to discuss secondary transfer with the Head Teacher.
