Secondary School Transfer

A meeting for ALL Parents/Carers & CHILDREN was held on 11 June 2019 for those children moving to secondary school in September 2020.

Applications to secondary school open in September. Most secondary schools will hold open events in September and October. It is strongly recommended that you attend these to get a real feel of the schools and choose the one that is right for your child. The council would recommend that you list at least three schools as your preferences.


More information can be found via the Bucks County Council website.


Applications are not made to or handled by either Haydon Abbey School or the intended Secondary School.  Therefore, if you make a paper application you must send it to Bucks County Council.
