Transition to Secondary School

The main schools that Groveland pupils transition to for their secondary education are:

1
Hailsham Community College
1
Heathfield Academy.
1
Kings Academy, Ringmer.
1
The Cavendish School.

In Term 1 these schools invite parents and pupils to attend meetings and open evenings to get a flavour of the school. This is also an ideal opportunity for parents/carers and pupils to ask any questions about the school they may possible attend.
