Starting secondary school can be an anxious time for many.  At St Cyres School, our staff fully understand this and work very closely with primary schools to ensure an effective and smooth transition process for all the pupils that join us in Year 7, whether pupils join us from our local schools or beyond.  Our ultimate goal is to ensure that every pupil that starts at St Cyres School feels welcome, supported and most importantly happy.  Each year, we tailor our transition programme to suit the needs of our prospective pupils and offer bespoke transition support to those individuals with specific additional needs.  

St Cyres is a highly sought after school and our application numbers continue to rise with each academic year.  Please find below the timeline for admissions in Year 7 to St Cyres School below:
