Pupils are normally transferred from primary between the ages of 11 years 6 months and 12 years 6 months, so that they have the opportunity to complete at least four years of secondary education.
Parents of pupils who have moved to the area or who want their child to transfer to the school should contact the school office for information about appropriate procedures and to arrange a visit.
Parents who want to send their child to a school other than the catchment school should make a placing request. The procedure for making a placing request is explained in the leaflet ‘Sending your child to school.’ You can pick this leaflet up from any school, call our customer contact centre, 0300 300 0300, to have a copy sent to you, or download the form from the council website: www.renfrewshire.gov.uk.
Enrolment into Secondary School is normally carried out from Primary School in December/January, when parents are given details of the Secondary School for their area (including the school handbook) and are asked to state their intention either of sending their children to the associated Secondary School or of making a placing request for another school.
Induction procedures for pupils starting at the school and their parents
A P6/P7 Parents Information/Open Evening is held in October with a further Open Evening later in the school year when Placing Request Parents are invited to the School. P6/P7 pupils have a “Freshers’ Day” in October and P7 have an extended visit in June.
