IMG_1502This information applies to entry to Brentwood County High School in September 2017.

Transition from Primary School to Secondary School

In March 2017 parents will be informed by Essex County Council whether their child has gained a place at this school or has been placed on the waiting list. Further places will be offered as and when they become available. Any appeals will be dealt with in line with the procedure set down by the Government.

Information for parents regarding uniform etc. is distributed during the summer term before entry. A representative of the school visits feeder primary schools to talk to students about Brentwood County High School and to answer student’s questions about transfer. Information is collected from class teachers and primary school Headteachers. In June 2017, the children will be invited to visit the school for their ‘Welcome days’. In June 2017 there will be a meeting for all parents to attend regarding the transition from primary to secondary school.

Arrangements for parents of prospective students to visit the school are below:
