Our preparation towards 11+ is gradual and supportive, placing our knowledge of the individual child at the heart of the process. Children are taught the ability to use and apply knowledge and to have well-honed exam techniques through exposure to various practice papers. Alongside developing a growth mindset, this fosters a sense of resilience and confidence to approach the process with realism and composure. We aim to develop happy young people with confidence and learning skills to cope with the demands of the senior school they move to.
Our dedicated specialist teachers work closely with pupils and parents to give them the tools they need for their 11+ journey. One of the many benefits of our smaller class sizes is the personal attention lavished on each child to be prepared for their transition to secondary school. One-to-one teacher-pupil conferencing is the cornerstone of our approach to 11+ preparation.
Alongside academic rigour, we continue to value and champion a creative curriculum inspired by active learning where children take ownership and develop a lasting love of learning and strong study habits.
The development of school values coupled with a growth mindset fosters a love of learning and helps develop happy young people with the confidence and learning skills to cope with the demands of whichever senior school they go to.
