Secondary Transfer 

The school is a feeder school for Comberton Village College, which has an extremely good reputation for the quality of education it provides for its pupils. There is also liaison between our school and other feeder primary schools to ensure a smooth transition from primary to secondary education. The Year 6 pupils visit the college during their last term at Dry Drayton and members of the college staff meet the children. A number of our children transfer to other schools in the area e.g. St Bede’s which is an interdenominational school, Swavesey Village College and Impington Village College.
