Life after Warwick Prep
The Warwick Independent Schools Foundation offers a complete education for boys and girls from 3-18. Many children join the Foundation by coming to Warwick Prep and stay right through to the completion of their A Levels. Boys and girls leave us at different points during their time at Warwick Prep as detailed below. Warwick Prep accepts both boys and girls in to the nursery from 3 years of age. At the age of 7 (Year 3), the boys progress on to Warwick Junior School. Girls stay with us at Warwick Prep until the age of 11, where they progress to King's High School.
Boys moving to Warwick Junior School
Based on their progress at Warwick Prep, and their aptitude, boys will be offered a place at Warwick Junior School during the Spring Term of Year 2.
It is sometimes the case that boys are offered places on condition that curriculum support lessons are provided on arrival in Year 3. These continue for as long as the Headmaster of the Junior School deems necessary in order to allow the boy to access the curriculum effectively and confidently.
Girls moving on to King's High School for Girls
Similarly, based on their progress at Warwick Prep, and their aptitude, girls will be offered a place at King's High during the Spring Term of Year 5. If there are any concerns about whether a girl will continue to thrive at King's High this will be addressed with parents in advance and then the Entrance Examination may be used to determine a place, as with candidates from outside the Foundation.
If a girl joins Warwick Prep during Year 5 or Year 6, then again, the Entrance Examination may be used to determine a place, as with candidates from outside the Foundation.
