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 2022

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

Academic, music, drama and sporting achievement was recognised by the award of a number of scholarships and exhibitions, but more importantly was the evidence of the ‘can do’ attitude that our children have and their enthusiasm for school life.
The children were prepared for a variety of schools and feedback from many of them recognise 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 many thanks to the staff for their support and guidance.

We have long-standing links with many independent senior schools and local state schools and some links that we have established in more recent years. 

We prepare our children for a wide range of both boarding and day, co-ed and single sex senior schools. 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.
