Secondary Transfer

Parent Workshop

There will be a parent workshop to support all parents with secondary applications on 12th October at 15:45.

Please see the slides below for more support and information regarding this.

Welcome from Annie Gammon and Cllr Anntoinette Bramble

On behalf of the Headteachers, teachers and support staff, we would like to welcome you.

Choosing the next step in your child’s education is a huge responsibility for any family. It is important that you examine your preferred schools carefully and consider their admissions criteria in order to make the right choice for your child. We’re pleased that you, like so many other local parents/carers, have made Hackney schools your preferred choice.

We have excellent schools in Hackney offering a rich curriculum and strong attention to personal development: 95% of secondary children are in schools rated as good or outstanding by Ofsted. Hackney schools, collectively, are in the top quarter nationally on all of the main key secondary school measures, including Progress 8 and Attainment 8 (measures of how well our pupils do in eight GCSEs including core subjects).

Hackney Education is committed to supporting the best possible education for our young people. We work closely with schools to ensure they keep improving and that they give all children the best possible start in life. Whichever school your child moves on to, they are guaranteed excellent opportunities.

As your child makes the step from primary to secondary school, we want you to continue to be involved in encouraging their learning and maintaining excellent levels of work, motivation and behaviour.

We wish you and all pupils starting secondary school in Hackney the very best for the future.

Director of Education
