Boys move up to the Senior School once the Junior School has equipped the boys with the academic skills required to access the Common Entrance syllabus.
Over these two years, they learn the requisite knowledge, subject-specific skills and exam technique to tackle the Common Entrance Examinations.
The pedagogy of these lessons is still very much in sympathy with the boys specific learning styles and, as in the Junior School, class sizes are kept to a maximum of twelve pupils.
The boys are taught, English, Maths, Science, Geography, History, Religious Studies and French as examined subjects and PSHCE, Music, Design and Technology and Art to maintain breadth and diversity within their curriculum.
The key aim of these two years is to gain the boys' entry into mainstream, academically selective independent senior schools with excellent results and the necessary skills to flourish there.
