We are incredibly proud of our current Year 6 cohort who achieved some outstanding results this year.

30% of our children were offered places at local Grammar Schools, continuing a long-standing trend of around 33% of pupils moving from Gidea Park to highly selective Grammar Schools. 50% of Year 6 were offered places at selective independent schools and all pupils who applied to independent schools were offered a place at their first choice.

More about our 11+ preparation can be seen here.


We help identify suitable senior school destinations for our pupils but do not push them in one direction, as you can see from the below dropdowns there is a huge variation in schools chosen. We give children the knowledge and skills to get into the schools they want to go to, and the experience and confidence to thrive when they get there.

Every cohort is different and we ensure parents are supported in finding the best school for their child.
