Transition from Preparatory to Grammar School
The transition between schools is as seamless process.
A commonality between campuses of both staff and students encourages prior familiarity with the next stage of education as pupil’s progress.
Rather than becoming uncertain of the change to a new educational environment, children are often become eager to embrace a grammar school for which they are already prepared.
A child’s prior experience of a formalised timetable of lessons assists in organising the ‘structured thinking’ of pupils entering the Grammar school. They will be familiar with the staff whose lessons they will attend, and who are then able to introduce them to more advanced material.
Another of the many benefits of continuous progress between schools, is the consistency of contact between teachers and parents.
The small size of the teaching and tutor groups allows staff to maintain close monitoring of students, effective communication of assessment and continued progress of each child.
