By the end of the pre-prep years our boys have received a thorough academic grounding that enables them to confidently start the next phase of their education.

We understand the pressures that both parents and boys may feel during the selection process and therefore offer particular support throughout this time. As parents you will be given time to discuss your son’s academic progress and particular interests with members of staff who know him well. Your son will be well prepared to demonstrate his academic skills in a timed test and will have a mock interview. We hope that by preparing your son in this way he will face no sudden surprises and will therefore be able to represent himself accurately and confidently. We encourage the boys to have fun and to enjoy the challenges of the assessment days.
