At Rugby Free Primary School, we recognise the importance of a happy and positive transition from pre-school to primary education or changes in school mid-way through the year.

We understand that this may be an emotional and stressful time for both pupils and parents but we also hope that it is an exciting one! We work hard in ensuring that transition is as smooth as possible and that you and your child have opportunities to visit us before starting at RFPS.

Why don't you come and visit us?

In order to help you make the decision about whether RFPS is right for you and your child, we hold regular parental tours of the school every month. This is where you have the opportunity to hear a bit about the school from a senior leader and see the children fully engaged in their learning. Please call or email the school office on  to book a place on one of our tours as places are limited.

  • Application Process
    You will receive the official transfer documents from the local authority during the Autumn Term of your child final year in primary school inviting you to select your preferred secondary school. The local authority then informs secondary schools of their prospective students in the Spring Term. RFSS’s Transition and Primary Liaison Leader will then keep in close contact with our feeder primary schools and during the Summer Term will visit all primary schools to meet with our new intake of students. We will talk to your child’s teachers about the progress made so far and any strategies used and needs to be addressed.
  • Year 7 Induction
    During the Summer Term our new intake spend at least one day with us for “Induction Day”, during which they will get to know key staff and students in their new school and familiarise themselves with our buildings and rules. On the same evening, we invite all prospective students back into school with their parents to ensure parents have opportunity to meet key staff and have the chance to ask questions. ​ In-year admissions are currently administered by Warwickshire County Council. If you require further information on the process for In Year admissions, please follow the link
