Our Future Schools’ department takes a child-focused, collaborative approach to placing young Dragons into their chosen senior schools and we have strong, long-established relationships with a wide selection of schools nationwide.
Along with the Headmaster and Deputies, the Future Schools team works closely with Tutors to monitor progress and advise families on suitable schools where their child would thrive and enjoy success.
The journey begins in Year 4 where the pupils benefit from Reasoning lessons, and these continue as part of their timetabled lessons until the end of Year 6. As the children move through the School, pre-test Preparation sessions are run during Activity and Club time, in advance of the ISEB Common Pre-Test and other school-specific pre-tests.
To prepare for interviews, we have engaged with an external company to run an interview practice session for all Year 6 children. This is followed up with further practice with Tutors and other senior members of staff prior to any interview at a senior school.
Typically our leavers progress to more than thirty destination schools after sitting their respective School, Common Entrance or Scholarship exams.
