Your Child’s Next School
YOUR CHILD’S NEXT SCHOOL
All children start their secondary school at the end of the school year in which they reach the age of eleven. North Somerset Education Authority does not operate a “feeder school” policy.
The village of Hutton is situated in the Weston-super-Mare consortium area which comprises the following schools: Broadoak Academy, Churchill Academy and Sixth Form Centre, Priory Community School, Worle Community School, and Hans Price Academy.
However, parents are welcome to apply for a place at any alternative school. Full details of the admissions criteria are available from the Education Authority.
Details of transfer arrangements are circulated to parents of leaving-age children by North Somerset Education Authority. In the Summer Term of their final year, prospective parents are invited to a meeting at their allocated secondary school and their children have a visit to meet staff and pupils and familiarise themselves with the school.
The transition from primary to secondary school is a big step for all children and these arrangements help to smooth the transfer and allay any anxieties.
