Secondary Transfer

Children from Allfarthing transfer to a variety of secondary schools, in both the maintained and independent sectors. Parents and pupils are supported through this process by experienced staff who are here to advise and assist. We often invite ex-pupils to come back and talk to the children about their new schools as a way of making the whole process more comfortable and exciting.

Each September year 6 students take the Wandsworth test, with parents being informed of the results by mid October. During the first 2 weeks of the autumn term the year 6 teachers invite parents/carers in to discuss secondary schools, and the secondary school process, to help ensure that the children are applying for suitable schools and meet the state school application deadlines. 

For those applying to Independent schools, the application process runs from September to December, depending on the school. Please see individual school websites for details.
