Senior School Destinations & Scholarships

We are fortunate to be served by excellent local secondary school provisions; approximately half of our Year 6 children continue their education at:

·         Esher High School ·        Heathside School
·         Hinchley Wood School ·         Howard of Effingham
·         St Andrew’s, Leatherhead, ·         Three Rivers
·         Tiffin Boys ·         Tiffin Girls
·         Tolworth Girls


We work closely with our colleagues at these schools to ensure that the transition between us and the secondary school runs smoothly.

The remainder of our Year 6 children transfer to the independent sector, many of whom achieve scholarships – either academic or specific to art, music or sports. We are delighted that this year, even with the difficulties Covid-19 has caused, 90% of the children sitting entrance exams were awarded their first choice of school and of these, 53% were awarded scholarships.

The most popular choices include:

·         Claremont Fan Court ·         City of London Freemen’s School
·         Guildford High School ·         Halliford School
·         Hampton School ·         Kingston Grammar School
·         Reed’s School ·         Royal Grammar School, Guildford
·         St George’s College


To support our pupils in achieving places at these competitive schools we offer after school classes in 11 plus maths, English and verbal and non-verbal reasoning in the run up to the entrance exams. As your child moves through Esher Church School we are happy to offer advice on the secondary school options available to them.
