All 18 of the children who applied for Independent Schools have been offered places, in many cases at more than one school, and the vast majority at their first choice school. Of the 18 who applied to Independent Schools, almost half (8 children) have been offered, between them, a total of 12 Scholarships (5 last year). This is a fantastic result and particularly pleasing given that some very able children did not sit for Independent Schools this year.
So, many congratulations to Abhay (Academic Scholarship to The John Lyon School), Akshat (Academic Scholarship to Hampton School), Ayshmit (Academic Scholarships to Claires Court School, The John Lyon School and St. Benedict's School), Sam (Academic Scholarship to The John Lyon School), Ayobami (Scholarship to The John Lyon School), Ayomide (Scholarship to The John Lyon School), Sophie (Academic Scholarship to St. Helen's School Northwood and Northwood College) and Tito (Academic Scholarships to City of London School and St. Helen's School Northwood).
The children who sat for Grammar School have also done very well indeed. 78% (25 out of 32) of the children who sat them passed Grammar School tests (73% last year). This is an excellent result which compares very favourably indeed with the overall average Grammar School pass rate of 30% for all schools.
Many congratulations to all of Year 6, who have managed to combine academic brilliance with a huge commitment to sporting, musical, dramatic and aesthetic activities in and out of school.
