The St Robert’s community welcomes students from a wide range of primary schools. However, our five official feeder primaries are:

St Joseph’s Washington RC School – Washington
St Bede’s RC Primary School – Washington
St John Boste RC Primary School – Washington
Our Lady Queen of Peace RCVA School – Houghton le Spring
St Michael’s Catholic Primary School – Houghton Le Spring

To assist pupils in their transition from KS2 to KS3, we facilitate lessons throughout the year for their target language of either French or Spanish as well as visits to our school to participate in Science lessons. We complete a two transition days whereby half of the prospective cohort arrive for one day and then the whole cohort arrive for a second day during which we celebrate a community mass with Primary staff who are able to attend.
