Transfer to Prep School
Children entering the Preparatory School at Year 3 from other schools sit an entrance test. However, due to our programme of continuous assessment, children in Year 2 of the Pre-Preparatory and Nursery School do not have to sit this test and generally make the transition to Year 3, although there are occasional exceptions.
To facilitate the Year 2 to Year 3 transition, children are familiarised with Preparatory School routines by attending their productions and assemblies and meeting the staff who teach KS1 games and languages. The Heads of the Preparatory and Senior Schools are invited to attend events in the Pre-Preparatory and Nursery School and whole School events, such as Summer Meeting and Open Mornings, support seamless progression between all three Schools.
