As you are aware, due to government guidelines, many tours of secondary schools have been cancelled due to Covid-19 restrictions of large gatherings not being able to take place. In light of this, Lambeth's scheduled meeting last week which was to be held ot Jubilee Primary School  became a 'virtual' meeting, which included this presentation.

Please take the time to watch it so that if you are unsure of any part of the primary-secondary transfer process, you will know what to do. However, please also note that concerning your preferred schools, it is advisable to check for updates on their school websites to find out if 'virtual tours' will take place. Contact the school office and Crown Lane will be able to support  and assist with queries should the need arise.
