Leavers’ destinations 2014-17

Typically leavers move on to as many as 15 different senior schools each year with many of the Year 8 children attempting a scholarship of one sort or another.

The most popular destination schools include not only local choices such as Shrewsbury and Moreton Hall, but some of the most prestigious independent senior schools throughout the country including Winchester, Rugby, Harrow and Eton (no child in Year 8 trying to go to Eton has ever failed to gain their place). The map below clearly shows that Packwood is a prep school with a national reach.

The Headmaster discusses future schooling options with parents when their child reaches Year 5 or Year 6, at which point there is the beginning of a fuller sense of potential, talents and preferences. Almost all pupils leave at 13+ rather than 11+ and the right school for the individual (and the family) is sought, be it a boys’, girls’, co-educational, day or boarding school either locally or nationally. At the core of all our concerns are the happiness of the individual pupil and our determination that each pupil should learn according to their potential in an environment that challenges yet nurtures.
