St. Margaret’s Preparatory School achieves excellent results year on year that are far above national averages 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 academic, art, music and sports scholarships. Many pupils also sit the 11+ exam and the school has a strong tradition of successfully preparing pupils for entry into grammar schools.
The Headmaster and staff 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.
