Children looking to move to secondary school at the end of year 6 are encouraged to start looking round school while your child is in Year 5. Most secondary schools hold a number of open days in September. The closing date for applications to secondary schools is usually around mid-October.
Admissions are mostly handled by the Local Authority, but if the school you are applying for is an academy (and most secondary schools are now academies) you should always check their arrangements.

For other local authorities (eg Bristol) you will need to check on their websites for information.
Local Secondary Schools
The majority of the children from St Michael's go on to Abbeywood School, whilst others go to a variety of schools elsewhere in South Glos or Bristol.
