Moving to Senior School

The Hampshire School prepares pupils for transition to a broad range of day and boarding schools at both 11+ and 13+. We place 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.

In addition to the destination schools listed below for our pupils starting senior school, girls have previously successfully gained entry to the City of London School, Beneden School and St Paul's Girls' School with the boys securing places at the City of London School for Boys School, King’s College Wimbledon, St Edwards School, The Godolphin & Latymer School and Westminster School for Boys. Many of our pupils succeed to co-educational day and boarding schools including, amongst others; Brighton College, Canford School, Emanuel School, Epsom College, Haileybury School, The Harrodian School, Latymer Upper School, Mill Hill School, Rugby School. St Edward’s Oxford, Charterhouse, Oundle, Marlborough and Stowe.

One of the key roles of a preparatory school Head is advising parents on their child’s next school and our extensive knowledge and close relationship with all our prospective senior schools supports the transition. Preparation for senior school at 11+ and 13+ is tailored to the individual pupil’s needs and their first choice school. Parents are invited to meet with the Head to discuss their child’s senior school options in Year 5, and at their convenience. Our broad, rigorous and coherent curriculum covers the content of the ISEB and individual schools’ syllabi at 11+ and 13+. Sample papers with mark schemes are provided for regular practice and summer holiday revision packs provide 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, and our timely Parents’ Evenings and information events answer the queries that parents may have regarding the transition to senior schools in London and the Home Counties.

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