Moving to a Secondary School

Children from St Helena's School transfer to secondary education at the age of 11 years (Year 6). Our local schools are the John Spendluffe Technology College or the Queen Elizabeth Grammar School, both of which are in Alford.

To decide which type of educational course your child will follow he/she will undergo the selection process by taking the 11+ examination in the Autumn Term when he/she is in Year 6. You have the right to withdraw your child from this process if you wish. A placement at one or other of the Alford schools will normally be given to your child, if you live in their catchment area and you name them as your preferred school. Parents will receive information regarding the selection process and choosing your child's next school during the Summer Term of Year 5.
