Leavers’ Destinations

13th July 21

Dear Parents

I am delighted to be able to share with you our scholarship awards and destination schools after a fantastic set of Common Entrance results from our Year 8 pupils.  It is testament to the hard work, perseverance and resilience of the pupils that they have achieved so highly.  They have experienced many months of disruption, with lockdown forcing them to adapt their learning and teachers modifying their materials for online platforms.  We are very proud of all they have accomplished and thank the staff for their dedication.

As you can see from the table below, our Year 8 pupils have gained places at local schools and those further afield:

Our priority is always about finding the right school to suit the character of the individual child.   I am proud of the relationships we have with our destination schools that enable us to work together in the best interests of each individual.  Our scholarship programme supports pupils as they work towards academic scholarships as well as those in sport, drama, art and music.

We are hugely proud of everyone’s achievements and wish them every happiness for the future.

Best wishes
