Please feel free to contact us if these times are not convenient or you wish to see particular features of the school in greater detail.

Parents of Year 6 children automatically receive information about admissions from the Local Authority in the autumn term. 

The transfer from primary to secondary school is an important step for Year 6 pupils and their parents.  Staff at The Henry Box School work hard to make the transition as smooth and informative as possible.  Staff visit primary schools in the summer term to get to know primary school pupils who will be joining The Henry Box School.  An information evening is held in April for prospective parents and we have three transfer days in July, when pupils will have the opportunity to meet the other children in their tutor groups, sample lessons, tour the school, have lunch, and generally begin to become acclimatised.  Later the same week, the children and their parents/carers come into school to meet their form tutors.


Moving or Transferring Schools

Sometimes students join the school at a different point in their school life, usually due to a house move.  Visits to the school are welcome, prior to making a formal application.  To arrange a visit or request further information, please contact Eileen Bourton:  tel. 01993 703955,  email:
