Most boys remain at Thorpe House to complete their GCSEs, but for those boys who take their 11+ and 13+ Common Entrance exams, we work with them and their parents to prepare them for their next school.
The Headmaster and the Heads of Junior and Senior Schools meet with parents to discuss which school their son would like to go to. We do this because we want to make sure that those choices are appropriate for each individual and because we want our boys to thrive when they get to their choice of Grammar School, Sixth Form or boarding school.
We have an enviable level of success in getting our pupils into these schools which we believe is reflected in the results we achieve every year.
