Please look at secondary school websites and the Enfield website for the most up to date information about online events, a step-by-step guide to applying online, a guide to secondary schools booklet, school admission arrangements, medical priority guidance and moving on to secondary guidance. The online portal is open for parents to start making their applications from 1st September 2021.The national closing date for secondary transfer applications is 31st October 2021.

It is important that you take the time to visit as many schools as possible. If your child has a statement of Special Educational Needs the arrangements for your child’s transfer will be different. The SEN Services Team will contact you directly to explain the process further.
To prepare pupils for secondary school, children will be offered a chance to visit their new school and teachers from the local secondary schools will come and meet their new pupil’s at Highfield. We will also be running sessions with our year 6 pupils looking at changes and discussing concerns to ensure a smooth transition for all pupils.
