Junior to Senior

Many King’s Junior School pupils will progress at eleven-plus into our Senior School, and we make this transition as smooth as possible.

Throughout their time in Junior School children are given the opportunity to become familiar with our Senior School. For example, they will often have lessons or activities in the Senior classrooms and will interact with Senior School teachers in subjects such as Science, Art, Design and Technology, Music and Games.

Consequently, when pupils make the transition into the First Form, they feel comfortable and look forward to ‘moving up’ with the firm friends they have made in Junior School, along with the pupils that join King’s from many other schools. Being able to settle-in quickly and easily is particularly important at this sensitive point in children’s lives and the pastoral system at King’s closely monitors how our children are settling in to their new surroundings.
