We are committed to ensuring all our boys reach their potential and continue their learning at a senior school that befits their talents and interests. For boys whose talents lie in academic studies, we offer a scholarship preparation path for both 10+ and 11+ examinations.
In the Spring Term of Year 4, parents are invited to a meeting to explain the process for the 10+ advanced place procedures and through discussions with staff, analysis of both class work and assessment results and consideration for work ethic and personality, boys are invited to attend additional preparation classes in the Summer Term. We are proud that many boys are successful in gaining advance place offers to senior schools at 10+; in 2014, we secured five advance places to Hampton School and one to Kingston Grammar School.
The procedures for the 11+ scholarship preparation are not dissimilar, in that boys are invited to attend the extra classes in the Autumn Term of Year 6, having taken into consideration their assessment results, class work, work ethic and personality.
Boys applying for Music, Sport, Art or alternative scholarships at 11+ are also well prepared with individual pathways of support. These take the form of extra classes or workshops, interview practice with key Senior School Department Heads and preparation of specialist references.
We are proud that, in 2015, our 19 boys accrued 42 offers and 15 scholarships.
