Later Phase

160727_Pegasus Later Phase-13410

Welcome to...


Our Later Phase consists of:

YEAR 5 (9/10 year olds) & YEAR 6 (10/11 year olds)

Later Phase focuses on ensuring our children are Secondary ready but also "life-long learning" ready! We feel that their experience through Priestmead through Early & Middle Phase will enable them to successfully launch into the next phase of learning.  We introduce more ability grouping in Later Phase as we know this is an expectation in secondary school, but we do not forget they are still children who deserve the exciting, creative and challenging curriculum to broaden their horizons and inspire their futures.

Moving on to High School

When our pupils move to High school we make the process as smooth as possible. Year 6 staff run a transition programme, inviting staff from the local High Schools in to visit, supporting the families through the application process and accompanying parents on school visits where appropriate. A parent information meeting is also held, and in addition to this the staff are always available to listen to any concerns.

Current Year 5 - children will need to apply for a Secondary School place by 31st October 2020. For a Harrow High School place you will need to make an application on the council website here
