St. Margaret’s Preparatory School achieves excellent, above national average, results year on year allowing pupils to move onto destination schools ranked among the best in the region, such as Felsted, The Royal Hospital School, Ipswich School, The Perse School, The Leys School, New Hall School and many more. Our children almost always obtain offers at their first choice school and many receive scholarships in Academia, The Arts, Sport and Music or 11+ places at local selective grammar schools.
The main focus is entry to independent day schools or selective grammar schools, but there is diversity with some seeking boarding schools and local state schools. The Headmaster and the Year 5 and Year 6 teachers are very involved in the school selection process and work closely with parents to identify the most suitable school for each pupil, the one that will be just right for them. Over the years we have established strong relationships with many of the leading schools in the region, and as such we can suggest the school which we feel will be the perfect fit for your child, as they take that next big, exciting step in their education.
