Moving On

Please note, parents need to apply to individual Grammar schools to take the required entrance exams. 

Please see 2021 Admission Arrangements for more information.

We know that moving on from Bowdon Church School can be a difficult time for both children and parents. We have a lot of experience supporting families through this process and are here to offer guidance and support.

The most important advice we have is for families to visit prospective schools and to keep an open mind. Many schools have changed dramatically in recent years and by visiting the school, talking to staff and pupils you will get a feel for where your child feels most comfortable. 

Once places have been allocated Y6 staff are able to offer emotional support and practical advice for transition to secondary school. Most local schools offer opportunities to be involved in transition days and to meet some of their new teachers.
