Year 6 Secondary Transfer 2021             

Your child is in Year 6 so you will need to make an online application to transfer from primary school to secondary school in September 2021. 

At Ben Jonson we have a long history of providing support for secondary transfer and we aim to continue albeit in a different form. We will place more emphasis on sign-posting you to information on our school website and links to the Tower Hamlets secondary transfer website. 

Charlie has created a 'Year 6 secondary transfer presentation', which contains lots of important information and guidance about the secondary transfer process.
