Senior School Offers
We are delighted that each year our Year 6 children achieve excellent results in examinations to West London’s leading senior schools and beyond. Our absolute priority is to find the right school for each child, ensuring that they continue to thrive in their senior school destination in an environment most suited to their individual profile. This year, once again, we are delighted to be celebrating a fabulous array of results, with a plethora of senior school offers and a number of academic scholarships.
Most importantly, every child has a place at a school that will foster their particular academic journey while suiting their personality and interests. Securing a place at a school that is right for each individual is the key to their long-term success and to their happiness, both now and in the future. We are confident that Year 6 have chosen schools that ‘fit’ their interests and aspirations and we couldn’t be more proud.
We offer parents transparency and open advice throughout the process which uses a deep understanding of every child, along with a highly effective data system that allows us to give personalised recommendations to each family.
Mr Anstey, Headmaster, “Not only have the children performed superbly throughout a highly competitive process, but they have also developed the strong foundations needed, both academically and in confidence and character, that sets them up for a successful learning pathway post 11+. I am immensely proud of each child and have no doubt of the positive impression they will make when they join their respective senior schools.
The effort and commitment the children made to achieve their academic potential has been impressive. They have achieved this success while also reflecting our core values of curiosity, creativity, courage, and kindness. I know they will approach the world keen to grasp opportunities and appreciate all that life has to offer. They have generous hearts as we have witnessed over their years in Broomfield, supporting younger pupils and thinking of others in their charitable endeavours. Well done Year 6!”

Pathway to senior school
Our pupils will move onto the school that best suits their attainment and aptitude at 11+. We prepare them for the school that is right for them, and our experienced teachers will help support your child at every step of the way.
It may be that another Dukes school is suitable for your child. If so, we are happy to advise and recommend them, and one of the benefits of being part of the Dukes Education family is that we can offer priority entrance to your child.
What does priority entry mean?
Priority access means that a pupil at one Dukes school enjoys preferential entry to another, but it is not a guarantee of acceptance. Each school has its own admissions criteria, and an assessment process for entry, and every pupil needs to meet the minimum criteria. A child that meets the eligibility criteria to join another Dukes school moves straight to the front of the queue. This can take a good deal of uncertainty and stress out of the 11+ process.
Year 5 confirmation
If pupils prefer to continue on to a Dukes senior school, we may be able to confirm acceptance during Year 5, subject to meeting the entry criteria.
Radnor House School, Twickenham
Radnor House Twickenham is an independent selective coeducational day school enjoying a stunning location on the banks of the River Thames in Twickenham, where pupils thrive in small classes with a strong focus on individual attention. Life at RHT is shaped by the school’s commitment to providing an active learning environment for limitless minds. Everyone firmly believes that all pupils are capable of great things if effectively taught, motivated and inspired by their school environment.
Hampton Court House School
Hampton Court House is an independent co-educational school and sixth form. The school is situated in its own private parkland, a 30-to-40-minute drive from central London. At HCH, we lay the foundations of a lifelong love of learning. Children are offered the best of both worlds – they are emotionally supported and encouraged to work hard. The result of being raised at HCH means they will not only do better, they will be better people. All children are prepared for 13+ and while some go on to leading day and boarding schools, most choose to stay with us for their GCSE and A Level years.

Eaton Square Senior School
Eaton Square Senior School is a vibrant, popular community where pupils learn not only the skills but also the values that will prepare them for their life beyond senior school. The education at Eaton Square has a traditional British foundation, but a modern and international outlook. The school is located in two historical buildings in central London; Years 7 – 11 are on Piccadilly in a Grade 1 listed building that once housed Ian Fleming, among other notaries, and the Sixth Form which opens in September 2022 will be in a newly renovated Georgian townhouse in Belgravia. Students enjoy access to the Old Actonians sports club facilities.
