Preparing for the
next stage

Well before your child completes Preparatory School, she’ll start looking forward to – and preparing for – the move up to Senior School. New friends, new challenges, new opportunities. All in familiar surroundings if she remains at EHS.

To help her get ready, we organise a range of activities. Starting in Year 4, alongside the curriculum, your daughter will attend ‘taster’ lessons in our Senior School, and gain practice in taking exams and in non-verbal and verbal reasoning. In Year 5, she’ll spend a whole morning in our Senior School, and we arrange regular catch-ups, where girls can ask any questions about moving up.

We are also very experienced in preparing and supporting girls in gaining places at other senior schools. For example, in Year 6, they can attend a special Induction Day at their chosen schools, giving them the chance to spend time with their new classmates and teachers. However, we are delighted when girls decide to stay with us to continue their schooling. Once they’ve become part of the EHS family, remaining here for Year 7 and beyond puts them in a favourable position when progressing to higher education.
