PATHWAY TO SENIOR SCHOOL
As one of the premier prep schools in London, academic excellence is a given at Prospect House. We offer our children an exceptional education, tailored to them. Our teachers encourage our children to be independent thinkers, both inside and out of the classroom. While we are non-selective, we find the best in each child, helping them to develop their own unique talents.
As a result, our children continue their education at the UK's best day and boarding schools. Last year, our Year 6 leavers went on to schools including Godolphin and Latymer, King’s College, Wimbledon, Latymer Upper and Putney High School. While our Leavers' Destination list tells its own story, we are also proud of our record in securing a range of scholarships including academic, all-rounder, sport and music.
The 11+ process
Getting the recognition you deserve
Our approach to continuous learning and high standards is one of the reasons our children achieve such excellent 11+ results.
Children are prepared extremely well, from practice tests and interviews, how to sit an exam effectively maximising marks. We ensure that the children are fully prepared to sit the exams at their chosen schools.
We support them throughout this process to remove any levels of anxiety that the children might be feeling.
In Year 4 the Headmaster holds a group meeting to run through the processes leading up to 11+ examinations, how we support the children through this process, timings and school choices.
In the Spring term of Year 5 the parents will have a 1:1 meeting with the Headmaster where they will discuss their child's progress, assessment scores and school choices. Prior to this meeting the Headmaster meets all the teachers to discuss, in detail, each child’s progress.
We are very aware that this could be a challenging time for children and parents and understand the importance of working together so that every child fulfils his/her potential. We aim to make the 11+ process as smooth and enjoyable for the children as possible - it should be a time to celebrate their achievements and the progress they have made during their time at Prospect House School.
The Dukes Education family
As part of the Dukes Education family, students from Prospect House School are also offered preferential placement at some of the best senior schools in London, including Radnor House Twickenham, Hampton Court House School, and Eaton Square Senior in Mayfair. For students who are anxious about the 11+ exam, we can even offer early access so that your children can relax and look forward to the transition to senior school.
