Diary Dates

Our aim is to help your child make a successful transition from primary to secondary school.

A meeting is organised in the summer term of Year 5 (July) in preparation for the start of the application process in the Autumn term (September) in Year 6.

In the Autumn term a follow up meeting is held to share with parents, the Borough wide application process, the application booklet and to arrange 1:1 meetings with the head teacher to discuss individual secondary school choices.

In Year 6 pupils follow a transition programme delivered by the learning mentor and Year 6 teacher to enable children and families to be prepared to manage the transition to secondary school successfully.

All relevant information for applying for a secondary school in Wandsworth is included in the ‘Choosing a Wandsworth Secondary School’ Booklet.


For September 2024 entry, pupils are required to register to take the test even if they attend a Wandsworth Primary School. If you want to apply for Burntwood, Chestnut Grove or Graveney your child must take the test as part of their application.
These are the key dates and information that parents and carers will need if considering applying for a place at one of three schools listed above.
