We try to give our children the very best possible start and want them to continue to be as successful as possible in their education and enjoy the benefits of this as adults. We provide parents with information about the secondary admission process and are happy to advise on this individually. We have good links with local secondary schools, particularly William Edwards, for which we are a designated "feeder school". We welcome secondary staff to talk to year 6 children before the admission process and once their place has been allocated and our Y5 children frequently attend events at the secondary schools, helping them to see what the different schools have to offer. While there are good secondary schools in Thurrock, we acknowledge that some parents want selective education for their children and that some children have exceptional ability which is particularly catered for by such schools, and we happy to support children in this. We also have links with our nearest public school, Brentwood, which has a number of scholarships and a generous bursary system.
