We provide an excellent transition package for new Year 6 students who join the school. The transition package includes numerous visits to Kingsdown for taster days, transition activities including technology days, the Summer School and performances such as literacy festivals and concerts. Our staff and students also visit the Primary schools in order to familiarise them with the Kingsdown Community. Additionally, Kingsdown staff meet with primary teachers to ensure we are aware of all students needs that are joining us, and put support packages in place where appropriate.
We accept new applications and assess them in line with our admissions criteria. The admissions criteria include the following:
