Moving On – Year 6 to Year 7
A large majority of children leaving Glenfall move on to Balcarras Secondary School.
Glenfall and Balcarras have developed excellent transition arrangements and children throughout the school have opportunities to visit Balcarras.
Year 5 and 6 children spend several days at Balcarras each year, making use of their superb facilities and becoming better acquainted with the school.
Teachers from Balcarras regularly visit Glenfall to either meet with our teachers or teach small groups in subjects such as French.

Some families may prefer to send their children to grammar schools in Cheltenham or Gloucester. Parents are encouraged to discuss this option with their child’s teacher in Year 5 as grammar school selection tests are generally undertaken during the Autumn term of Year 6 and children may benefit from undertaking some practice and preparation.
