Transition to Seniors

Internal Applicants

For our pupils, entrance to the Senior School is automatic on the condition that their work and progress demonstrates that they are ready to make the transition. A scholarship exam may be taken in January of Y6 if you wish your child to be considered for a scholarship.

Every effort is made to ensure that the transition between our Junior and Senior schools is as smooth as possible. Our Year 5 and Year 6 pupils are already accustomed to eating daily in the Senior School dinner hall.  All those joining the Senior School attend a bridging morning and induction afternoon (held in June) and are assigned a ‘buddy’ in the year group above them to help introduce them to Senior school life.

External Applicants

Pupils wishing to join the Senior School at the age of 11 sit the Entrance Examination which normally takes place in January. Please see the Senior Admissions page for further information.
