Transfer to Junior School


In the September following the children's seventh birthday, most of our children transfer to Southway Junior School, which is less than five minutes walk from us.


The close links between the schools have been built up over many years and the staff at both schools work
hard to ensure a smooth transition.  Prospective parents are welcome to visit Southway School.  During the
Summer Term, prior to transfer, the Year Two children are involved in transition actitivies at The Gattons
and at Southway.

The ethos at Southway is very similar to The Gattons. Each child is valued as an individual and their
achievements, both in and outside the classroom, are celebrated.


As well as teaching the ten National Curriculum subjects, Southway provides a wide range of after school
activities and maintains a strong tradition in Music, Sport, and the Performing Arts.
