Year 5 (9+ Entry)

Year 5 (9+ Entry)

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.
