North Leamington School draws from a wide area, featuring several cluster schools including: Telford, Milverton, Cubbington, St Pauls, Our Lady’s, Lillington and Brookhurst Primary Schools; as well as attracting many students from outside our Cluster from areas such as: Kenilworth, Warwick and Rugby.

We recognise that the transition to a secondary school is a very exciting time, but in some cases it can also be an anxious time. To ensure all students have a positive experience, and in order to settle quickly we have an extensive Transition programme in place.

The Transition Team visit all cluster primary schools to meet prospective North Leamington students in their own environment and to enable direct communication with Year 6 teachers. Transition Leaders from our current Year 7 cohort accompany us on visits to Primary schools. This strategy has proved very successful in helping the new students feel at ease and they have felt more able to ask any questions they may have during these visits. The Leaders also support the new students at transition events and whilst settling in to Secondary school.
