We take great pride in the success our children in Key Stage 2 obtain, with the majority of our children gaining access to their first choice school. We accurately predict a child’s suitability to a wide range of senior schools and give parents guidance on the schools that will be right for their child. Our close working relationship with many of these schools helps inform our discussion with parents.

From Year 4 upwards, children who intend to apply for local Grammar Schools are offered assistance with selective examinations and interviews.

We are proud of the solid foundation we give our pupils before they progress to new Secondary Schools. Despite being non-selective, our children consistently receive offers from some of the most prestigious schools in the area, including the offer of scholarships.
