We are incredibly proud of our Year 6 pupils and the school places that Fircroft pupils are offered.
In recent years, Chestnut Grove in Balham is the secondary school that the highest proportion of our pupils transfer to. Every year, several of our pupils are successful at being offered a selective place (high test score) at Graveney School in Furzedown. We also have pupils who are offered places at nearby grammar schools and some who choose to attend independent schools which may be a scholarship route or a fee-paying route.
In order to prepare for the Secondary Transfer Process we hold talks for parents while their children are in Year 5 and again at the start of Year 6.
The Year 6 Wandsworth Test
In Wandsworth, all pupils at the start of Year 6 sit the Year 6 Wandsworth test. As well as being a way of assessing the ability of all year 6 pupils, the test has been designed to provide Wandsworth secondary schools with the information they need before offering places. Pupils who attend Fircroft will take the test at school, during school time.
