Year 11 Transition to Further Education
Almost all of our students transfer to further education at the end of year 11 as we do not have a Sixth Form provision. Prospectus and application forms for a wide variety of Colleges & Sixth Forms are available in the Careers Resource Area. Students are also able to get help with completing their applications & personal statements from the Head of Year 11, Ms Glitz.
As we are a partner school with Havering Sixth Form & Havering College of Further & Higher Education, our students have a guaranteed place at one of these providing they meet the entry criteria for their chosen course.
Transition to Post 16 Education - 2018
All year 11 students attended the RPA (Raising Participation Age) Event in Hornchurch on Tuesday, 2nd October. Parents and students were invited to a Post 16 Transition evening at the school on Thursday, 7th October @ 7.00pm.
