Transition from Primary to Secondary School
As part of the transition process Sir John Cass Red Coat school offers tours of the school on specific dates in June and July, as well as dates throughout September and October. These are open for parents and children to attend prior to the completion and submission of the primary/secondary transfer form. In addition there is also an Open Evening for children and guardians to attend.
When an offer of a place is made by Sir John Cass School, the family will then be invited to attend an admission interview. This is an opportunity to find out more information about secondary school and to provide details about the school to your son/daughter.
In the first week of July all of the Year 6 pupils who have been offered a place are invited to spend a day at Sir John Cass Red Coat School. On this day pupils will be given a taste of secondary school lessons. They will have lunch provided and will also been given an induction day pack. The pack contains details for the start of the new school year in September. It also has a booklet with transition tips for parents.
