Transition to High School

At St Michael's, although we have just become a full primary school, we are also looking ahead and preparing our children for their transition to secondary and the next stage of their educational journey.  For the majority of the children this will be to the Duchess's Community High School in Alnwick.


We have worked with the High School for many years, and more recently have developed strong links to ensure a smooth and seamless transition for our children.


We aim for our children to visit in Year 5 as a first step and we are planning a number of visits in Year 6 to ensure the children are as ready as they can be.


The closing date for High School Admission for Year 6 children is October 31st.  The portal can be found at:
