Destinations of Leavers (Senior Schools)

We work alongside families to help our senior pupils discover the right school for them. We support those who wish to transfer to the maintained sector and those moving on to one of the country’s leading independent/public schools, whether as a day pupil or as a boarder.  In 2018, 88% of pupils who sat for senior school scholarship examinations were successful in achieving an award.
