Choosing a Secondary School

The children who leave Cherry Orchard each year attend over 15 different schools in the area.  It is important that you make the right choice of secondary school for your child.  You can do this by attending open evenings when your child is in year 5 and at the start of year 6.  This will give you an invaluable insight into the school and see if it suits your child's particular needs.

If your child is in Year 6, you must apply for their secondary school place by 31st October 2019. Click on the link below to find out more information and to complete the online application form:

We recommend looking around the secondary schools before you apply so that you can make an informed decision.  Should you have any queries, please contact Mrs Emery.
