Here at Kingsthorpe College we understand that the move up to secondary school can be a daunting time for both children and their parents.

We believe that by working closely with families and primary schools during this time, we can help the transition to be a positive experience for everyone involved.

The purpose of this section of our website is to provide information to year 6 pupils who have been allocated a place in year 7 at Kingsthorpe College starting in September 2020. If you are looking to appeal to get your child a place at Kingsthorpe College please contact admin@kingsthorpecollege.org.uk and we will do our very best to guide you through the process.
