Entry to Senior School

We are always thinking about making sure your child is ready for their individual next steps. We know our pupils really well and prepare for a seamless transition to the Senior School, meaning they can really make the most of all Year 6 has to offer without the added pressure of entrance exams. Your child will visit the Senior School site regularly for activities including Forest School, Swimming and Games. More than 90 per cent of pupils choose to stay but for the small number for whom it’s not the right choice, we will support them in their journey.
