How We Prepare Girls For Their Senior School

If you would like to know what we do to prepare girls for their Senior School entrance requirements click here to download the brochure.


Girls have the opportunity of studying for 11+ or 13+. When leaving, girls go on to either girls' boarding public schools or co-educational public schools (about 75%), or to London day schools (25%). 

Girls work hard for their exams and all leavers are treated to a fantastic programme of trips and visiting speakers at the end of the year to reward their hard work. Previous trips have included tours round the BBC Television Centre, learning to water ski at Wimbledon Watersports Centre, creating plasticine animations to publish on You Tube, learning to walk like a model on a catwalk with the Standing Tall workshop, ten-pin bowling and taking part in mock trials (wearing real wigs!) at the Royal Courts of Justice. The girls all have a wonderful final few weeks at Broomwood.

Most senior schools offer scholarships and other awards to particularly academically (or musically, or artistically) gifted students, usually making funds available in the form of a percentage remission of fees (anything up to 50%) or a flat rate reduction. Entrance examinations are usually set by the schools themselves. They are based on Common Entrance but at a much greater depth.

We try to identify potential scholars early on (Class 5 or Class 7). We discuss with parents the best course of action to enable the particular girl to realise her full potential and, in due course, stand an excellent chance of success in these demanding examinations. Scholarship candidates are supported with daily small group tutorials with the Head's of Department and exposed to higher level papers, but we emphasise that for a girl to achieve the standard required demands a high degree of parental co-operation and involvement as well.

Girls are also helped by their tutors in this preparation because success in these exams is not just about academic achievement but about how well a candidate presents herself during the interviews and visits/Open Days.

Broomwood Hall has an excellent record in achieving scholarships and awards, largely because we pay close attention to these less easily definable aspects. Our girls have an outstanding record for coming across as mature, balanced and well-mannered individuals.

Advice on Next Schools

Advising parents on the choice of next school for their daughters is an essential part of what we do. We send girls to a wide variety of girls public (secondary) schools at 11+ and 13+ and also, increasingly, to co-educational public schools such as Marlborough and Wellington at 13+.
