Leavers' Destinations and Scholarships
Hazlegrove pupils move on to a wide variety of senior schools aged 13, having taken Common Entrance or Scholarship examinations. There is a wealth of knowledge available at Hazlegrove about entry to Senior School. Each year pupils go to many different senior schools around the UK.
Parents can talk with the Headmaster and other staff for advice at any time. The process ensures that the School gets to know the family and their desires and ambitions for their children, both academically and pastorally. We look carefully at the child in terms of their abilities, strengths and interests. The options for the family are then narrowed down depending on whether they are looking at boarding/day, single-sex/co-ed, selective/ non-selective and so on. We prepare all children for their Senior School pre-tests at Hazlegrove and give every child interview practice too for both Senior School entry and scholarship. We also have a well-developed scholarship programme for any child applying for any award to a Senior School.
The Headmaster and other staff are always happy to discuss the different options available for the children in the years leading up to Scholarship or Common Entrance.
Hazlegrove shares a Board of Governors with King's School, Bruton and is proud to be a part of this royal foundation, which dates back to the early sixteenth century. Usually around half the children in a year group will progress on to King's, Bruton, which is a co-educational boarding and day school for children between 13 and 18 years of age.
Scholarships to senior schools
Whilst we recognise that success for any child is relative to their own abilities, expectations and aspirations, we do, at times, have the opportunity to compare the performance and achievements of Hazlegrove pupils through competitive examinations at 13+.
