Transfer from Primary to Secondary

Pupils are normally transferred from primary to secondary school between the ages of 11½ and 12½, so that they will have the opportunity to complete at least 4 years of secondary education. Parents will be informed of the arrangements no later than December of the year preceding the date of transfer at the start of the new session.

Children in Primary 7 should attend Inverclyde Academy.

Parents who wish their children to transfer to a secondary school outwith their catchment area will be given the opportunity to make a placing request. Details will be sent to parents in December each year.
