Transfer schools

If you wish to transfer your child from one school to another, you can apply for a change of schools. If the change is not related to a house move, speak to your child’s current Headteacher first.

There is no guarantee that we can offer places at your preferred school/s, as offers are made only when there is space in the requested year group. You should not remove your child from their current school before you have an offer of a place at another school.  

If you are successful, your child will start at the beginning of the next term or half term, whichever is sooner.

Welsh medium education

There's never been a better time to learn Welsh. The Welsh Government has a long-term vision to see the Welsh language thriving, with a million people able to speak Welsh by 2050.

Learning and using the Welsh language offers an educational, cultural and employment advantage.

Transferring to a Welsh medium school

Learners (newcomers) who have not previously received Welsh medium education and have registered at a school to receive Welsh medium education in Year 3, 4, 5 and 6 will be entitled to outreach support at the beginning of their first term at their registered school.

Two staff members (teacher and a higher level teaching assistant) will provide support for learners. Support has been carefully structured to promote fluency in the spoken language (Welsh), enabling learners to fully integrate into school life through the medium of Welsh.
