Our ‘greenhouse’ approach pays handsome dividends as each year boys secure places at senior schools which suit their academic and wider interests. Typically, the majority of boys proceed to top independent boarding and day schools with many qualifying for scholarships.
About half of the boys leave at the end of Year 6 to join 11+ schools such as Highgate, UCS, Haberdashers’ Aske’s, City of London (by way of example) with the rest of the cohort staying on to complete Years 7 and 8. Popular 13+ schools include Westminster, St Paul’s, Harrow, Eton, MTS and Wetherby.
St Anthony’s provides comprehensive and bespoke advice to families, helping them navigate the application process.
Regular assessment and reporting of boys throughout the school helps to inform discussions.
Boys as a matter of routine are prepared during Year 6 lessons to sit for the ISEB Pre-Test as well as 11+ entrance exams (which usually include papers in English, Maths, Verbal Reasoning and Non-Verbal Reasoning).
