Where Next?

We are extremely proud of our Year 6 pupils’ examination achievements, not only in academic subjects but also in sport, music, art and drama.

Our children are thoroughly prepared for entrance examinations to senior schools and St Margaret's has an impressive record of success in academic and specialist subject scholarships.
One of the key roles of the Headmaster is advising parents which senior school will best meet their child’s needs and so we keep in regular contact with many senior schools and welcome return visits to the school by the Heads.

"Pupils are highly successful in gaining places in their first choice of senior school, with many gaining scholarships."

Exam Results 2024

Congratulations to our Year 6 children who completed their entrance exams back in January and will start their senior schools in September. 

All pupils were successful in being awarded a place in their first choice of senior school.  Academic, music, drama and sporting achievement was also recognised with a very impressive 27 scholarships and exhibitions. 
The children applied to a variety of schools and feedback from many of them recognises all that our pupils have to offer. Their commitment to learning shone through and we are very proud of the confident and articulate way in which they conducted themselves in interviews.
We send huge congratulations to all pupils in Year 6 and thank our staff for their support and guidance.

Here are links to some of those schools – please be advised that this is not a list of recommended schools, merely a list of those schools chosen by our Year 6 leavers and their families over the past few years.
