Belmont Primary School

  • 'Belmont has always struck the right balance between academia and learning for life.'
    Parent
  • 'A school that doesn't just excel at the academics but provides so much more, whether its music lessons and the lunchtime choir, or the 350 spaces in clubs each week, the football and netball teams or the shows that raise the roof of the top hall.'
    Parent Governor
  • 'The children are really fortunate to have such wonderful opportunities which is why they love Belmont and which makes it such an amazing school.'

Secondary school transition

 

Applications for secondary schools are made in the first half of the autumn term of the year in which a child is in Year 6. The majority of secondary schools hold their open days in late September and early October.  We hold an annual meeting for parents of our older pupils to talk through the process of establishing preferences for schools and applying for secondary admission.  The Head Teacher is also happy to provide further advice to individuals where this may be helpful. 

 

The local authorities in the neighbourhood are part of the pan-London co-ordinated admissions system, which enables parents to apply to state-funded schools in several boroughs should they wish to do so.  Applications for up to six schools are made via the local authority in which a child is normally resident.  Should parents choose to apply to independent fee-paying schools, these applications are made directly to the schools themselves.   Local authorities and schools publish clear admission criteria and also offer advice sessions for parents.

 

We have close links with our local secondary school, Chiswick School, to which the largest proportion of our pupils transfer.  Belmont pupils have the opportunity to visit the school for curricular and extra-curricular activities such as food technology, information technology or science clubs, and the Head Teacher, Deputy Head and former pupils visit Belmont to speak to children and parents about the school.  

 

Children from Belmont transfer to a number of schools in the local area, both state and independent.   Year 6 teachers and other members of staff liaise with staff from the receiving schools and spend time preparing the children themselves to ensure that transition is as smooth as possible.
