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 and Queen Elizabeth Grammar School, both of which are in Alford.

To decide which type of educational course your child will follow they will undergo the selection process by taking the 11+ examination in the Autumn Term when they are in Year 6. You have the right to withdraw your child from this process if you wish. Parents will receive information regarding the selection process and choosing your child's next school during the Summer Term of Year 5.
