Transition to the Senior School

  • Sharing facilities. During their time in the Prep School, pupils share many of the facilities, such as sports and music, with the older College students. They interact with their seniors on a daily basis and have mutual respect for each other. So, for Prep pupils moving onto the College, the environment is already familiar.
  • Working together. As pupils move through the Prep School, there are opportunities for them to join senior students. Musicians may attend masterclasses and talented sports boys and girls may be invited to train with Senior School students.
  • Transition Events. Events are organised to give pupils the opportunity to experience the Senior School teaching facilities and meet some of the teachers. Then, in the summer before they start Senior School, all pupils – internal and external – are invited in to meet each other, their House staff and their House.
  • Induction Programme. Once they join the College in the Michaelmas term, there is a full programme of induction and team building to ensure boys and girls settle in as quickly as possible.
