Transition to Secondary School

Transition to Secondary Education

At the end of Year 6, children transfer to one of the local comprehensive Schools/Academies or a selective School/Academy in the Borough of Southend. All children are given the opportunity to take the 11+ selection test. Information relating to this test is distributed during the summer term of Year 5. Children living in the catchment area of Plumberow Primary Academy would normally be allocated a place at Greensward Academy, although this is dependent upon their own admissions policy. During Years 5 and 6, visits to Greensward Academy are arranged in order to familiarise our pupils with the larger environment of a Secondary Academy/School.
