It is hugely important that we help to get your child into the right school for them to continue their education. Work here starts early in the Prep department when parents are encouraged to start looking at the next stage in their child’s journey.
Relationships between all the senior schools and Westville House are excellent. Destination schools are wide ranging from the excellent selective Grammar schools to GSAL, Bradford Grammar, Harrogate Ladies, Ashville College, Woodhouse Grove, Queen Margaret’s, St Olaves, Giggleswick and many more. During Forms 3 and 4 ‘Taster Activity Days’ are offered by many senior schools and are enormously useful for getting a flavour of what a school has to offer. Some of our children go on to specialist vocational schools e.g. Yehudi Menuhin School and staff will be keen to assist and guide parents.
In Form 3, a detailed Information Evening is held to outline all the options available to your child. Examinations for entry to senior schools are mainly held in the January of the year your child would be due to start. Entry to the local selective Grammar schools is by examination in the September of the year prior to entry.
Here at Westville House we work hard to ensure your child has the smoothest transition possible into their senior school of choice.
