Preparation for Senior School

Preparing your child for senior school.

Oakfields prepares pupils extensively, yet supportively, to achieve a place at their first choice Senior School.

We are proud of the solid foundation we give our pupils before they progress to new Senior Schools. Despite being non-selective, our pupils go on to achieve places at some of the best Grammar and Independent Schools in the region, including the offer of scholarships.

Proud of our children's journey to success.

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.

What do our alumni say about their time at Oakfields Preparatory School?

Katie A - Queens College

"The children at Oakfields are really lucky to have such a great start to school life. There is a positive, encouraging, friendly and family feel all around the school and after all they have done for me, it certainly made an easier (and not so scary) transition to my chosen Senior school, especially in the preparation for my exam and interview."

Ralph B - Brentwood School

"Oakfields prepared me for Brentwood School by opening my eyes to a higher standard of education, after spending my infant years at a state infant school. Oakfields gave me the pride in my school and education to want to continue that into my senior years. The opportunity of being Sports Captain and representing Oakfields in many events gave me the competitive spirit needed to succeed."

Dara A - Wycombe Abbey School

"I will forever be appreciative of the wonderful foundation I had at Oakfields, not just academically but in every area of my life. The atmosphere at Oakfields was friendly, nurturing and encouraging. Everyone was made to feel important. I had a lot of opportunities to grow as a person, I learned excellent work ethics, the value of hard work, persistence and that putting in your best effort is more important than winning- all of these important values have been extremely beneficial for me during my transition to secondary school."

My daughter has absolutely thrived at Oakfields. It has proven to be an incredibly positive and nurturing environment for her. I couldn't be happier with the quality of education she receives and the genuine excitement she has for going to school every single day.
