Secondary Schools

Dear Parents,

You will receive your 'Admission to Secondary school' information booklet some time in late July. It is posted to you from the authority.

You can either apply on line or use a paper form.

At Markland Hill School we have an 'Open Evening', in July where we invite all the local Secondary Schools to come here and provide information to parents and to the children. We invite parents and children from Years 4 and 5. There are teachers, from local  schools, to chat to you about their school and offer advice and any support.

It is always a great success.

We will hold another event in the Summer term. Watch out for the dates.
