Transfer to the Senior School is automatic with any pupils who wish to be considered for a scholarship to the Senior School sitting the Entrance Examination alongside new applicants in January.

Throughout the Junior School the teachers prepare the children for their move  to the Grammar School at the end of Year 5. Through discussions with class teachers and the Year 6 teachers at the  Senior School, we can  ensure that the pupils’ ability levels will be catered for when they take up their place at the Senior School.  

To help the children prepare for the Senior School there is a programme of transition events throughout their time in Year 5; this includes Geography, Science and PE Days, as well as an Induction Day in the Summer Term.
