Many of the arrangements established in the Middle School continue in the Senior school (Years 6, 7, & 8) where pupils are taught almost entirely by subject specialists who build on the sound foundations laid in earlier years. Pupils are set for maths, English and French.
We are frequently joined by newcomers to the Senior School and it is our policy to facilitate their transfer from the maintained system.
Since the school extended its provision for girls from 4+ to 11+, girls are fully prepared for 11+ transfer examinations. There is an excellent choice of senior girls schools in north-west London (day and boarding). Parents are invited to discuss their daughter’s options for the next stage in her education with the Headmaster.
The choice of a pupil's senior school at 13+ is a matter of on-going discussion between parents, Headmaster and academic staff.
Usually, an application is made to two schools, the first being the family's first choice with a second in reserve. Some families also consider boarding education for their children (either in the independent or maintained sectors) and this tends to be an additional choice.
Our record of enabling pupils to move on to the right school at 13+ is enviable, as our Pass Lists clearly show. In most years a number of our 13+ leavers receive senior scholarship awards in a variety of areas, including academic excellence, art, drama and sport.
As with the younger years pupils are most welcome to arrive at school from 8.00am onwards.
Children needing longer before and after school care may take advantage of our Before and After School provision from 7.30am to 6.00pm.
