At the end of Year 8 our boys leave us to move on to a range of very good senior schools. The majority of the boys will move on to a London day school; around twenty to twenty-five boys commonly join St Paul’s and Westminster each year. Other popular schools include City of London, UCS and Merchant Taylors’. Eton, Winchester, Harrow, Tonbridge and Radley are popular choices for those boys who wish to board. In Year 8 between 12 and 16 boys will sit scholarship exams for their chosen school. The Hall has an excellent track record of gaining both academic and music awards.
The vast majority of the boys will have received an offer in Year 6 or 7 for entry to a senior school in Year 9. Increasingly many of the offers are unconditional with boys sitting exams in the June of Year 8. Some boarding schools still require certain Common Entrance Exams to be sat.
