Moving to Senior School

Parents of children that attend RGS Prep have a wide selection of future schools to choose from when deciding where to move on to. In Year 5, every parent meets with Mr Freeman-Day to discuss the senior schools where their son will flourish. Historically, around 60% of pupils move on to the RGS Senior school but with over 30 schools to choose from, parental choice is certainly not limited. As a guide, this section will take you through some of the basic information. More information can of course be obtained by contacting the schools directly.
