Our leavers have great success in getting into selective independent and grammar schools at both Year 6 and Year 11.
Most of our Year 11 leavers go on to study for A-levels at grammar, selective independent schools or high-performing sixth-form colleges. Recent destinations, for example, have included St Bernard’s, Burnham Grammar, Upton Court Grammar and Langley Grammar. They do so armed not only with strong GCSE results and passion for their chosen academic subjects, but also with confidence and leadership skills after their top of school experience as Year 11 prefects.
In recent years our Year 6 pupils have secured scholarships to prestigious independent schools such as The Abbey, Hampton, Wellington and Millfield, while others have been successful in their 11+ and gained places at excellent local grammar schools such as Langley, Herschel, Upton Court and Burnham. However, a good number of our Year 6 pupils choose not to leave as they and their parents realise the advantages of remaining in the Long Close community where every child is known and valued.
Whether in the run-up to Year 6 or Year 11, we offer a wealth of advice and experience to our pupils and parents as they consider the range of options open to them.
