In Year Transfer changing of school
Parents/Carers will need to contact The Radclyffe School to check if place is available. They will then be asked to complete an in-year transfer form (Download Here).
Should a place not be available in that year group, they will be placed on our waiting list.
Prior to starting, key documents will be sent for completion online.
Following this, Parent/Carer and student are required to attend a meeting with Year manager. This is to help establish a positive partnership as well as discuss the following key arears:
- School expectations
- And answer any questions students or parents may have.
In the meeting, a start date will be given. On the first day of arrival, a tour of the school to familiarise with building, lesson timetable will be given, and a reminder of school expectations.
