Moving up to a Secondary School
Early in the Autumn Term parents of children in Year 6 are consulted about their choice of secondary schools. Payhembury School is a feeder school for The King's School , Ottery St Mary. We have established an excellent relationship with Kings and the children have many opportunities throughout their time at Payhembury to visit the school and to work with their teachers too.
There is a good deal of transfer liaison with The King's School, with staff visiting the school prior to transfer to talk to the children, followed by a visit to the secondary school. In the latter half of the Summer Term the children have a unique opportunity to spend a week at The King's School with children from other feeder schools. This is an invaluable experience, which prepares them for the September. There is also an open meeting at which parents have an opportunity to visit the school and chat to staff
