Our school serves a very wide geographical area. Each village has
'designated' secondary schools to which the Local Education Authority
provides transport. For the majority of our villages these are the
schools in Horncastle but for some it may be Alford, Spilsby or Louth. Whilst
parents do have the right to express a preference for any secondary schools
they should be aware of the way in which places will be allocated and that
they will be responsible for transport to any school other than that which
is designated by the Local Education Authority. Information concerning
secondary transfer will be made available each year by the Local Authority to parents of
children reaching the end of Year 5. Online applications can be made
Telephone applications can also be made by calling: 01522 782030.
In most parts of Lincolnshire, including East Lindsey, a system of secondary selection is in use. During Year 6 (the final year at our school) the children are selected to attend either a grammar or a secondary modern school. The option exists for parents to withdraw their children from the selection procedure.
We put on a meeting for parents of Year 5 pupils each year to give information about the procedures. Year 5 parents are encouraged to attend this meeting! Information can be viewed on the Secondary Transfer page.
|This table lists the main schools which we feed and provides links to their websites (where they have given permission for such a link) so that parents may browse into these to find out more about the options which are available. There are, of course, other excellent secondary options slightly further afield!|
