Sir John Heron Primary School

Together we learn. Together we achieve.

Moving to Secondary School

Your child will move on to secondary school after finishing Year 6 in primary school. 

If your child lives in Newham you will need to apply through the borough. If your child lives outside Newham, but you want him or her to go to school in Newham, you will need to apply to the local authority in the borough you live in.
Remember, you must apply for a place, even if:

  • You want your child to go to the local school.
  • Your child has an older brother or sister at the school you prefer.
  • The school you prefer has a priority or catchment area and your child lives within it.

Before you apply please read our current Starting Secondary School booklet:
