Yr 6 Destination Schools 2020

The choice of senior school is hugely important and one which we take seriously. Whether it is state or independent school, APS works in close partnership with parents to support them in selecting the school that is the ‘right fit’ for their sons. Our close working relationships with many of these schools helps inform our discussions with parents.

We are proud of the solid foundation we give our boys and our whole school curriculum allows for a natural and gradual progression to 11+ standards. We ensure the boys are thoroughly prepared and supported for their entrance examinations.
