Graduates’ destinations

As the historic statistics of the destinations of our Year 2 pupils demonstrate, they move on to a large number of mostly local schools. Over the past four years, about three quarters of our graduates have joined the following eight schools: Sydenham High (girls), Rosemead (co-ed), Streatham & Clapham (girls), Alleyn’s Junior School (co-ed), Dulwich College (boys), Dulwich Prep London (boys), James Allen’s Preparatory School (girls) and St. Dunstans (co-ed).

It is noteworthy that many children receive several offers, enabling them to choose the school which best suits them. For July 2021 graduates, for example, the average was 2.5 offers per child. Furthermore, our pupils achieved a 100% offer/application rate at several schools, giving parents peace-of-mind that there is a good, safe choice for their child’s next school.

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.
