Mid Phase Admissions

The LEA coordinates entry to Newham schools and will notify the school and parent when a place is allocated. For entries during the school year, we will invite the parent/carer and daughter to a pre-admission interview. If your daughter has previously attended a school in the UK, we will ask them to provide information on your daughter’s attendance, punctuality, behaviour and attainment so we can ensure she is supported from the start of her time here with us.

Year 6 - 7 Transition

Students starting Year 7 in September will have the opportunity to spend two days at Sarah Bonnell during the previous July. Contact with the primary school is also made during the summer term before entry to ensure a smooth transition to the secondary phase of education.

The LEA admissions policy is contained in their booklet: "Moving from Primary to Secondary School". All parents with children transferring to secondary school will receive a copy of this booklet.

We welcome visits by prospective students and their parent/carers. In early October each year the school holds an Open Evening for current and prospective parents, when displays and exhibitions by staff and students can be viewed. This is followed by 5 Open Days when tours of the school are available during normal school hours. A visit to the school outside these days can be arranged by appointment.

Further Information regarding the LEA admissions policy can be found at Newham School Admissions, from the information booklets below.
