As the historic statistics of the destinations of our Year 2 pupils demonstrate, they move on to a large number of local schools in the wider Dulwich area. Over the past five years, about 80% of our graduates have joined the following seven schools: Rosemead (co-ed), Alleyn’s Junior School (co-ed), Sydenham High (girls), Dulwich College (boys), Streatham & Clapham (girls), James Allen’s Preparatory School (girls) and Dulwich Prep London (boys). Naturally, there are fluctuations from year to year in terms of the number of pupils and their destinations depending on birth rates, availability of places, abilities of individuals within a cohort etc., but these top destinations have quite consistently remained the same.
It is noteworthy that many children receive several offers, enabling them to choose the school which best suits them. For our 2019 graduates, the average was 2.7 offers per pupil (132 offers for the 49 Year 2 pupils) from the schools listed below. This result is very consistent for both girls (on average 2.6 offers/pupil) and boys (2.8 offers/pupil).
We are proud of this record, which is particularly strong when considering our inclusive ethos and intake. It proves that we regularly meet our objective of preparing all children to achieve their full potential, thus enabling them to move to the school most suitable to them.
The following table shows the destinations of all of our graduating pupils at the end of each of the past five school years.
