Transition to the College

This section

The Prep School staff work closely with the Senior School staff to ensure there is a smooth transfer for pupils moving into Year 9. 

Pupils sit the Common Entrance examination in the core subjects at the end of Year 8 and this information is used for setting purposes.  The Humanities follow a programme of study that has been written in conjunction with the Senior School Heads of Department and prepares children for GCSE.  The majority of our pupils transfer to the Senior School, although a very small percentage may move to other Senior Schools, for which they are thoroughly prepared.
