Transition to KS3


This page will feature aspects of KS2/3 transition and the choices that are available to our pupils as they approach KS3. Please view the OWL Trust Pathways documents to see where some of our pupils transfer to after Waverley.

How do OWL Trust schools compare to national averages?

If your child attends one of our OWL Trust schools they will on average perform better than their peers nationally by the time they make the transition to KS3. We have just received the results of our pupils leaving KS2 and 2015 national figures for pupils across the country. Our ten schools continue to thrive when we consider outcomes for pupils since the formation of the OWL Trust. Data from the end of KS2 2015 again reveals excellent performance against the national picture in the key areas of reading, writing and maths. Standards in reading and maths at both level 4 and level 5 reveal impressive figures but what is most pleasing is the progress of our pupils – once again we are well above the national average progress scores.  The results outlined in the tables below will be presented in further detail when the DfE release more in depth comparative data – however what is clear is that on average OWL Trust pupils have higher standards and progress more than their peers nationally. Well done everyone!




How do we work with our secondary partners?

The Outer West Learning Trust meets with Paul Sampson (Headteacher of Walbottle Campus) and Jenna Wilkinson (Head of Year 7) to discuss our pupils moving onto KS3. These meetings occur every term and Jenna Wilkinson also sits on Waverley's Governing Body.
