There are many secondary school options for the children who leave Ditchling (St Margaret’s) CE Primary and Nursery at the end of Year 6 and are very fortunate to be in the catchment area for such fantastic provision. We advise you to take your child and have a look around all these schools and decide what is the school to meet all of your needs. All our Year 6 children can attend the transition day(s) for the secondary school of their choice, this is really important to prepare the children for this change.
The majority of children who have previously left Ditchling (St Margaret’s) CE Primary and Nursery have gone to Downlands Community School, Hassocks. We are also in the catchment for Priory school, Lewes and Chailey secondary schools, which a few children choose to attend.
