Destination of Leavers

Whilst parents whose children join Beechwood in the Woodlands Nursery or the Junior Department do not have to worry immediately about senior schools, preparation for 11+ and 13+ exams comes around only too quickly!

The School is well prepared for this, and we make it clear to parents that staff are available at an early stage to advise them on the most suitable senior schools, for their child and to assist with their applications, including preparation for 11+ and 13+  entrance exams as required.

We are very experienced in this area and have positive relationships with all the local schools as well as many of those that are further afield. Pupils from Beechwood Park go on to a wide variety of high quality schools, both independent and in the state sector, day and boarding, some co-educational and some single sex.

From a very long list, here are some examples of our pupils’ destinations in recent years:

Abbot’s Hill Aldenham Aylesbury Grammar
Aylesbury High Bedford Berkhamsted
Eton Haberdashers’ Aske’s (Boys and Girls) Haileybury
Harrow Merchant Taylors’ Mill Hill
Oundle Queenswood Roundwood School
Rugby St George’s Sir John Lawes
St Albans High School St Columba’s College Uppingham

Conversations between the School and parents and pupils start early; we discuss preferred choices of school, realistic expectations and how the School can support each family’s choices.
