The Dragon is proud to be a truly independent Prep School and our A Block (Year 8) leavers progress to more than thirty destination schools with many of them gaining academic or specialist awards at an impressive list of senior schools.
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. The Deputies work closely with the Future Schools team and the Head to 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 which continue as part of their timetable until the end of Year 6. As the children move through the School, preparation sessions are run in advance of the ISEB Common Pre-Test and other school-specific pre-tests. To prepare for interviews, an external company run an advisory session for all Year 6 children. This is followed up by further practice with Tutors and other senior members of staff prior to any interview at a senior school.
