Support for Senior School Entry
Holmwood House has a long and proud record of sending children to a wide range of senior independent schools across the local area, Eastern region and nationally. We provide a 4-13 structure working ultimately towards an assessment framework at 13+, which includes the Holmwood House Certificate and Scholarship routes for the majority of pupils whose preparation for senior school entry is catered for within normal curriculum time.
Whilst our primary focus is on preparing children for 13+, we do provide support in preparation for 11+ for those families who wish to move their child to a senior independent school at 11 for Year 7 entry. We are proud of our pupils who gain places at Colchester Royal Grammar School or the County High School for Girls every year via the highly selective 11+ assessment process, which typically targets the top 4% of the national cohort.
Whilst Holmwood delivers a strong programme of teaching and learning that fulfils the requirements of senior independent school entry, in the ongoing spirit of supporting and working closely with all our families in their senior school choices, we are keen to provide additional support for those children sitting entrance exams.
The following two documents aim to support parents in the process:
