School Test Results – Year 6

The results of the Government’s National Curriculum Assessment tests for the last three years are shown below. It should be noted that the results of small schools can vary considerably from year to year by the performance of just a few pupils, as there are only a small number of children taking the tests.

Secondary Transfer

Children come to St Mary the Virgin School from the many surrounding villages and move on to a range of schools in East Sussex and Kent. In recent years children have obtained grammar school places at various Tunbridge Wells schools. There are strong links with Beacon Community College in Crowborough and some children transfer to Chailey School in South Chailey, Sackville School (East Grinstead), Uckfield Community Technical College (Uckfield) and Bennett Memorial School (Tunbridge Wells).
