Starting in Year 3

Transfer to the Junior School for Year 3

Children usually transfer to Fryern Junior School at the end of Year 2 (7 years). Parents will need to complete an admissions form. The deadline for applying for a year 3 place is in January. Please see the admissions policy for current information. Further details are available on request.

Please see our Virtual Tour for more information about the Junior School

As the infant and junior schools are federated, transition is very smooth for the infant children. The children will often attend joint assemblies and take part in shared activities with the junior school which eases transition.

Before joining the junior school in September your child will have:

  • met their new teacher at the infant school
  • visited us several times
  • worked with children in year 3
  • spent an entire day with their new teacher and class.

You will be invited to an Induction Evening in the summer term where you meet all the members of staff who will be involved in your child’s education when they join the junior school. You will also have the opportunity to tour the school.
