Entry into Year 7
Every year, new Year 7 pupils join us for the final two-year Common Entrance Programme, through which we prepare boys and girls for admission to a wide variety of 13+ day and boarding schools.
Our Senior Department pupils learn in small classes taught by subject specialists and heads of department who are passionate about their subjects. The School encourages active and characterful engagement, where pupils respond in truly inspiring ways.
As a stand-alone preparatory school with no single senior school attached, we help you to choose the best senior school for your child, assisting with applications and entrance exam preparation. We have excellent relationships with senior schools locally and further afield.
Many of our boys and girls move on to these schools with scholarships. All our Year 8 pupils sit either 13+ Common Entrance exams or complete extended scholarship assessments. They lead at the top of the School with a sense of pride and move on well-prepared for the adventures that their senior schools offer. Why join us at Year 7?

I just wanted to express our thanks for all your help with our son's exam preparation over the summer and especially in the first few days of this school year. We really appreciate all the help, encouragement and support that he has been shown. The results will take some time but I feel whatever the outcome he did himself proud. He smiled, was confident and handled the nerves with control. Beechwood always goes that extra mile and yet again I feel you have been sensational. Our son is a lucky boy to be in such a supportive environment Top Form Parent
