Leavers’ destinations 2014-20

Typically a third of Packwood leavers move on to Shrewsbury with others progressing to as many as 15 different senior schools each year. Many of the Year 8 children gain a scholarship of one sort or another.

The most popular destination schools include many of the most prestigious independent senior schools throughout the country including Harrow, Winchester, Rugby and Eton as well as more local options.

The Headmaster and the Academic Team discuss 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 centre of our ethos is the happiness of the individual pupil as well as our determination that each pupil should learn according to their potential in an environment that challenges yet nurtures.
