Leavers' Results and Destinations

We support each parent in the process of selecting the right senior school for their child.

We are very experienced in the process of choosing suitable senior schools for each pupil and are aware that every child has specific abilities, individual talents and requirements.  Our Headmaster not only knows our pupils well but also has connections with each senior school, understanding their ethos and entrance conditions to assist parents with this sometimes daunting task.

We prepare our pupils for senior school entrance examinations at the ages of 13+ and 11+. Historically the most popular schools for boys leaving Clifton Lodge have been Merchant Taylors’ School, City of London Boys’ School, Hamptons, The John Lyon School and St Benedict’s. Whilst most of these schools set their own entrance examinations, taken in the January of Year 8, the syllabus is the same as that for Common Entrance Examinations, taken in the June of Year 8.

Every year a number of boys sit either Common Entrance or Common Academic Scholarship examinations for a variety of other schools.

Girls will usually take 11+ examinations for senior schools in Year 6.  However, we regularly benefit from girls remaining at Clifton Lodge in Years 7 & 8 and assist in securing excellent senior school places for them at 13+.
