Senior Schools & Scholarships

Congratulations on getting everyone to their first choice of school. We have been so impressed with Prince’s Mead; our daughter was saying this morning how happy she is and all the fun she has there. We shall be sorry to go and just wish it continued to 18! It is such an amazing school. We often hear about other schools in the area and the various frustrations from parents, so it is lovely to be at a school that is so well run and pitches the balance just right between work and play. It is definitely a school for the children and yet still promotes a good work ethos without losing the element of fun and interest. Also I do think the feedback is excellent and shows the time and effort all the staff put in to thinking about any issues raised. So thank you, an amazing job well done!”

Prince’s Mead has an outstanding success rate in preparing its pupils for entry to senior school, both day and boarding. Our Pathway Programme in Years 5 and 6 focus minds on competitive senior school entrance examinations through meticulous academic preparation in English, Mathematics, Science, Verbal and Non-Verbal Reasoning. Our results speak for themselves; our pupils are awarded places at many of the leading senior schools in the country and academic, sports, music, art and drama scholarships have all been achieved in recent years.
