Admissions Contents


We aim to make the transfer from primary to secondary as smooth as possible by:

  • Visiting pupils whilst still at primary school and discussing their needs with class teachers
  • Inviting pupils to an individual admission’s interview with parents/carers in the summer term before they start inviting primary school
  • Children and parents to use the exciting facilities available and to take part in ‘taster’ lessons as part of our dedicated ‘Year 6’ Day
  • Inviting primary school children to watch and participate in productions, summer school, sporting events and concerts at Swanlea
  • Running parent information sessions introducing parents /carers to life at Secondary school our East 1 Schools’ Partnership with six local primaries helps us support and empower parents and pupils, raising achievement and supporting transition
