Success at 11+ for Wandsworth Prep

Wandsworth Prep School is delighted to announce the results of its first group of Year 6 pupils who have all achieved great success in their 11+ examinations. All pupils have been offered places in the schools of their choice, with scholarships awarded to Trinity School and Whitgift School. 

The range of offers reflects our wholehearted commitment of ensuring every child is nurtured and encouraged to achieve their full potential. We aim to ensure that every child moves on to the school which is right for them and we do this by having a carefully planned 11+ preparation process of support in place.

Commenting on the results, Bridget Saul, Headteacher, said: "Our first cohort of Year 6 leavers are testament to how successful preparation for 11+ is at Wandsworth Prep. Aside from being offered places at some of the finest schools in London and the South-East, feedback from senior schools has been how our children approached the various components of the entrance process with confidence and poise. What is significant, is that our children have clearly acquired the attitudes and learning skills which will enable them to embrace the demands of the next stage of their education.”

Throughout the school, sustained emphasis is placed on breadth and balance, ensuring that children enjoy their learning, whilst being mindful of the necessity to prepare them for the important senior school entrance exams they take in Year 6. The preparation towards 11+ is gradual and supportive, placing our knowledge of the individual child at the heart of the process. It does not involve non-stop cramming and coaching; instead, children are taught the ability to use and apply knowledge and to have well-honed exam technique through exposure to a variety of practice papers. Alongside the development of a growth mindset, this fosters a sense of resilience and confidence to approach the process with realism and composure.

If you haven't yet had the chance to visit the school, or you would like to visit us again, we warmly invite you to attend our next Open Morning on the 16th May from 9:00am - 11:00am. Simply complete our short booking form to confirm your place here.
