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?
