For those who’ve just started year 6, now is the time to start making decisions about where to make the step up to secondary school.
The deadline for secondary applications for September 2021 is 31st October 2020. If you want to guarantee a place for your child at our school, make sure to apply as soon as possible.
At Devizes School & Sixth Form College, we work with local primary schools to make the transition to secondary school as smooth as possible. Our key stage three curriculum is designed to provide every student with a platform to build upon throughout their time at the school.
A common problem in secondary schools is the failure to address gaps in children’s learning that were not filled during primary school. By ensuring that every child achieves a standard platform, we strive to avoid this issue.
The environment in primary schools is very different to that in secondary schools and the step up can often be daunting for new students. That’s why we place an emphasis on making sure every child is made to feel like an important member of our school community.
Everything we do at Devizes School is informed by our values of courage, pride, and resilience. We have the courage to always do the right thing; we are proud of ourselves, each other, and our school; and we have the resilience to never give up and always bounce back.
By embodying these values, our new students will position themselves to be extremely successful during their time at Devizes School.
To give your child the best chance of succeeding in their secondary education, make sure to get your application in before 30th October. We can’t wait to meet you in the coming year!
