Secondary Transfer

Moving on

St. Mary’s Church of England Primary School offers support to our Year 6 children when the time comes for them to make decisions about their future. We also offer advice and guidance to parents in helping out with the process of their child’s transfer to secondary school, for example, every July our prospective Year 6 parents are invited to attend a meeting about secondary school application and transfer.


Transfer for September 2022

If your child is currently in Year 6 and will be due to transfer to secondary school in September 2022 please visit the following website for important information, including how to apply and when to attend an open day:


Applications for transfer open from 1st September 2021.

Please note: all application forms for secondary transfer must be received by 31st October 2021. This includes both online and postal applications.

National Offer Day

If you apply online you will be emailed the outcome of your application on the evening of 1st March 2022.  If you apply on a paper form you will be sent an outcome letter by first class mail on 1st March 2022.


You will also be sent a notification letter if it has not been possible to offer your first preference school. The notification letter will provide detailed information about the outcome of your application and what do next.


Independent schools

Independent schools are not funded by Wandsworth Council and therefore each independent school will have their own separate admission process. There are a variety of Independent Schools in Wandsworth or within easy reach of the borough. Some independent schools offer the possibility of financial assistance in the form of bursaries or scholarships. Please contact the independent school you are interested in directly to find out their admission and transfer process.
