Senior Schools

The Headmaster is pleased to provide advice and guidance on all aspects of transfer to Senior Schools, and the best choice of destination.

The process of preparation for Senior School exams is important and involves aiming at high academic standards. Nevertheless, the School continues to ensure a full and proper education during this time, as is right for the boys and as expected by Senior Schools.

We prepare boys for entry into the major London Independent Schools including:

  • City of London
  • St Paul's
  • Highgate
  • UCS
  • Mill Hill
  • Westminster

Boys regularly achieve academic scholarship success, most recently in 2021 to Merchant Taylors' and St Albans.
