Celebrating outstanding scholarship and Common Entrance results

At King’s House we are celebrating excellent results in Year 8’s Common Entrance and Scholarship once again exams this summer.

All the pupils have confirmed places at their first choice CE schools, with some brilliant grades. Once again they are going on to a really wide range of schools, including boarding, day, single-sex and co-ed. As an independent prep school, this is a real strength as pupils go on to senior schools each suited to them.
