Leavers Destinations

Our mission is to align every student with the school which will suit them best in the future. To do so requires a close understanding of the strengths and interests of every student, together with a clear understanding of the schools available in Manchester and the local region. The natural exit point for Moor Allerton students is at the end of Year 6 when the majority of our students are accepted into their senior school of choice having taken entrance exams. The process starts several years before your child reaches 11.  We will start by talking to you about your aspirations for your child, and will let you know which school we think will suit him/ her best.  Academic ability is but one of several factors which will affect the final choice of school.

Once this is decided, we will ensure that your child is prepared properly for any assessments and tests they are required to sit.
