Although many of our children progress to Grammar or selective Independent Schools, our focus
is to ensure each child achieves a place at their first choice of secondary school; the school that is
right for them. We offer all parents expert support in identifying senior schools that will best suit their child’s interests and abilities. Our teaching staff prepare the children fully for the 11+ entrance exams to Independent Schools and Grammar choices. Our specialist teachers prepare
children for Independent School scholarship applications in: Academics, Art, Drama and Sport; supporting and advising on portfolios of work and evidencing achievement.
Our aim is to ensure every child achieves their first choice place in secondary school, whether that be; Independent Day School, Boarding School, Grammar School, State Academy or overseas choices.
