Beyond St James Prep

We understand that choosing the right Secondary School for your child can seem like a minefield. We offer all parents support in identifying schools that will best suit their child’s interests and abilities.

We prepare children thoroughly for the 11+ entrance exams and transition to Senior School with weekly verbal reasoning and non-verbal reasoning lessons. Our excellent academic provision is bolstered by increasing input from and smaller teaching groups with our Head of English and Head of Maths in Y5 & Y6. Although we are entirely committed to supporting the children in preparing for the 11+, this is not at the expense of a wide and varied curriculum which includes a range of stimulating trips, holidays and workshops, and an outstanding arts programme.

All pupils in the Junior School gain automatic entry to our Senior Schools. Many of our parents greatly value this option.

Other school destinations include Merchant Taylors’, Latymer Upper School, Ibstock Place, Emanuel, St Mary’s Ascot, Queen’s Gate, Aldenham and Hampton.
