Moving to Secondary School

As children approach Class 4, parents start think about what the next step for their children might look like. At St. Mary's we support all our children as they are moving on to their next schools and we know everyone's journey is different. We have fantastic links with an array of High Schools to ensure our children have a smooth transition from Primary to Secondary school.
