Transfer to Secondary School
A growing number of primary and secondary schools in the
area means that some parents will need their children to transfer
to secondary school at 11+ (the end of year 6). There are
also secondary schools in other local authorities.
If your child is attending a local authority primary school or a
middle school that will not have a Year 7 year group in
September 2017 and is due to transfer to secondary school in
September 2017, you will receive an information sheet from your
child's current school during the Autumn term 2016.
To help you with this process we have produced a
transfer booklet(PDF document opens in new
We strongly recommend that you apply for a school place using the
online facility, which will be
available to you at the start of the admissions process.
You will be able to download a transfer to
secondary school application form(PDF document opens

If you are applying for a secondary school place and you are not
resident within the Bedford Borough area you should contact your
own local authority for an application form or you can apply online
to your local authority.
