Moving On – Year 6 to Secondary School
Locally there are two thriving and progressively achieving secondary schools in Bicester – Bicester Community College (BCC) and The Cooper School. Southwold School is a feeder school to Bicester Community College and at the end of Year 6 many children transfer to this school for an exciting secondary school education.
The partnership provides many opportunities for children to participate in sporting activities, theatrical productions or “gifted and talented days” at both Bicester Community School and The Cooper School.
