The Hampshire School Chelsea prepares pupils for transition to a broad range of day and boarding schools 

The Hampshire School Chelsea places high importance on finding the right school for each individual pupil and we have an enviable record of pupils obtaining places at their first choice schools. Our extensive knowledge of admissions processes and the close relationships we maintain with the Heads of senior schools supports a very smooth the transition. Preparation for senior school entrance examinations is tailored to the individual pupil’s talents and with cognisance of their first choice school.

Parents are invited to meet with the Head to discuss their child’s senior school journey in Year 5, and at parents' convenience for younger pupils. The Senior School Transition Booklet, written specifically for our parents by our Head, Dr Edmonds, is a detailed guide to the senior school admissions process for a successful outcome. Our broad, rigorous and coherent curriculum covers the content of the ISEB and the full range of individual schools’ syllabi at 11+ and 13+. Sample papers with mark schemes are provided for regular review and summer holiday revision packs include sample resources differentiated to support and challenge all pupils. Our mock examinations and familiarisation exercises, with computer interface and online assessments, replicate the real tests experience as closely as possible. In addition, we offer optional early morning sessions for practice of papers and revision. Parents’ Evenings, information events and the annual Senior Schools Fayre held in September at The Hampshire School Chelsea with representatives from the senior schools, further support parents' decision-making regarding future schools.

With this robust approach to preparing all the pupils for the next phase of their educational journey, a smooth and successful transition to senior school is assured.
