Entry into Year 5 at Newton Prep means your child will receive four years of uninterrupted education in a supportive and stimulating environment. We prepare every pupil for senior school, giving them the time and resources to become confident, well-rounded individuals.
Your child's journey at Newton Prep
- Year 5: pupils are taught to familiarise themselves with 11+ / 13+ exam formats. Senior School preparation begins formally in the Spring Term of Year 5 with a general meeting with our Deputy Head - Senior School Transfer, followed by the opportunity for a one-to-one meeting to discuss your child and make a plan for their next steps.
- Year 6: support continues with 11+ / 13+ exams, which are commonly taken during the Autumn Term in school. We provide guidance on interview techniques, giving pupils ample opportunities to practise with senior members of staff.
- Years 7 & 8: The Newton Prep Diploma is a cross-curricular programme followed by our Year 7 and 8 pupils, combining the humanities subjects (Geography, History and Religious Studies) with Art and Drama so that they are taught in a thematic way. Supplementing the academic aspect of the Diploma are trips, workshops and charity events.
If you are interested in a place for your child in Year 5, contact our Head of Admissions, Mrs Lucy Dickson for an initial conversation.
Bursary places are available for abled pupils. These are awarded after an academic assessment, and the level of financial assistance is dictated by a means test.
