Leavers' Destinations

leaversBoys at the Thorpe House move on to a range of different school at different ages

At age 11, from those boys who leave the majority go to boys’ Grammar Schools. These are:
  • Dr Challoner’s Grammar School, Amersham
  • Royal Grammar School, High Wycombe
  • John Hampden Grammar School, High Wycombe

A few other move to co-educational Grammar Schools. These are

  • Chesham Grammar School
  • Burnham Grammar School
 At age 13 a small number of boys move to a variety of different senior independent schools. In recent years these have included
  • Merchant Taylor’s School, Northwood
  • Berkhamsted School,
  • The Oratory School, Reading
  • Bradfield College
  • Eton College
  • Shiplake College
  • Downside College

At age 16 our boys have plenty of options available to them for the next stage of their education. Local Grammar Schools have many spaces that become available at sixth form level and the local Sixth Form colleges all have very good reputations. Therefore the needs of boys who want strongly academic sixth form courses or more vocational courses can be met from the provision of the state system. In a typical year about 65-70% of our 16+ leavers move into a state Grammar School

Additionally, all the local Independent day schools and the majority of boarding schools are more than pleased to admit boys into their sixth forms. Although there are no firm plans on the table at the moment, there are a number of development opportunities in the local area which might allow us to provide our own sixth form provision at some point in the future.

In addition to the local Grammar Schools listed above our 16+ leavers have moved to the following settings in recent years.

  • Wellington College
  • Berkhamsted School
  • Chalfonts Community College
  • Licensed Victuallers' School
  • Amersham College
  • Henley College
  • Hemel Hempstead School
  • Direct Employment
