Primary transition

The journey from primary to secondary school is an important one and at Lawnswood School we endeavour to support our future students, parents and carers through this process. 

We are exceptionally proud of our relationship with our feeder primary schools and this section of our website celebrates our work with these schools, as well as providing you with information about how we will support your child on bridging the gap during their journey to Year 7.
Mrs N Goodwill, Assistant Headteacher.



Leeds Education Authority (LEA) has an admissions policy and system which can be found on the Leeds City Council website >>

If you need further advice from the school, contact Mrs R Speight - Office Manager: rhian.speight@elawnswood.co.uk.

What our students, parents and feeder primary schools have to say...

“I have found the transition from Primary to Secondary school very comfortable and easy because I have had support and care shown to me. I also have made loads of new friends which has made the transition easy because I could talk to people who were going through the same thing as me. My parents were also very helpful as they gave me endless care and support”. - Abigail 7GPA
