Application deadline - September 2023 intake

The deadline for entry to Farmor’s in September 2023 is October 31st 2022.  In September 2022 local authorities will send out information via your child’s school explaining how to apply for a secondary school placement.

Transition from primary school

The transition between primary and secondary education is a crucial period in a child’s education.  At Farmor's we have a number of activities to ensure that your child has a smooth transition, including two induction days, a visit to the majority of the primary schools to speak to the class teacher and students, a uniform trying on session and a parent information evening.

Year 6 Induction days

The Year 6 Induction Days take place during the summer term.  All pupils with a place at Farmor’s in Year 7 spend two full school days with us.  This gives them the opportunity to meet the Headteacher, Assistant Headteacher (Pastoral), Head of Year and Form Tutor.  Prior to their arrival they will have been assigned to their Tutor Groups for Year 7, so they are able to meet and start getting to know their new classmates.

Throughout the two days the students take part in activities that encourage the development of new friendships, building their confidence and enthusiasm for their arrival in September.  At the end of the second day they go home on the school buses that they will use in September, and this helps to allay any fears regarding transport.

Admissions to Years 8-11

Parents wishing to apply for a place in Years 8-11 are invited to make an appointment with Amanda Sampson, Head's PA, to discuss the move and be given a tour of the school.  Amanda Sampson can be contacted by either email or phone 01285 712302.  Full details of the admissions process are provided following a visit.
