Senior School Success

100% of Chandlings Pupils receive offers from their chosen senior schools despite a challenging twelve months

Chandlings are delighted to announce that their entire Year 6 cohort has received offers from their chosen senior schools.   This is an exceptional  achievement during a very challenging year, as the entire process has been managed throughout lockdown and we have still achieved places at academic selective schools while online learning.  The formats of the exams kept changing but all the children showed the resilience to adapt and perform to the best of their abilities.

One Year 6 parent said “it was so good to watch my son take the whole thing in his stride… he could deal with anything that came up in the exams even when the formats were chopping and changing and the arrangements were quite demanding! Thank you very much for giving him that preparation and confidence.”

Over 30% of the Year 6 children were offered a variety of scholarships and exhibitions to selective senior schools. These included:

  • Academic Scholarships- Oxford High School, Headington School and The Oratory School. 
  • English Scholarship - Cokethorpe School
  • All Rounder Award - St Helen and St Katharine
  • Sports Scholarship - Headington School
  • Drama Exhibition - Cranford House
  • Art Scholarship- Our Lady’s Abingdon

“We pride ourselves on offering a broad curriculum and a huge variety of extra-curricular opportunities that allow our children to thrive and excel,” said Ms Cook, Head.  “We continue to ensure that our children are both challenged and inspired allowing them to discover themselves and have space to grow and this is shown in the breadth of scholarships awarded.”

Ms Cook added, “I would like to say how proud I am of both our Year 6 pupils and our staff who have applied themselves to the challenges they have faced during lockdown, worked with each other and together have produced some fantastic results.  Congratulations.”
