Senior School Destinations


Our results show that you can be academically ambitious without being selective. We have a consistent track record of our pupils leaving at 11 plus to some of the best Independent and Grammar Schools in London. Last year, over a fifth of our pupils received prestigious scholarship offers in academics, sport, music, drama and art. 

We guide our pupils and parents through every step of the 11 plus process. It starts in Year 4 with verbal and non-verbal reasoning, following into Year 5 and 6 where the curriculum remains broad and exciting, whilst specific to entrance requirements for schools in the area. 

Over the past 4 years our most popular schools fall into four key categories:

  • Local: Eltham College, Colfe's, St. Dunstan's, and Blackheath High School
  • Dulwich Schools: Alleyn's, Dulwich College, and JAGS
  • Further afield: City of London, Cobham Hall, Bromley High School, and Farrington's
  • Grammar Schools: Bexley, Kent, and Bromley

At Pointers we talk about the right school for each child, rather than having preconceived ideas about where children should go to aged 11. Other popular schools include Christ's Hospital, King's Rochester, The King's School Canterbury, Sylvia Youngs Theatre School, and Kingston Grammar.
