ISI Report Highlights


'Year 6 successfully gain places at a range of independent and maintained schools with demanding entry requirements'


'Pupils are confident about their next steps'


'Pupils recognise how successfully the school prepares them for transition to their next schools through examination and interview practice'

At Essendene Lodge we encourage our pupils to be independent, responsible and confident individuals.

This is supported by the many opportunities on offer for our Prep pupils to hold positions of responsibility and to be role models to the rest of the school. Children can be selected as Head Boy and Girl, House and Sport Captains or Senior Prefects. Our Year 5 and 6 pupils are also invited to attend our termly Open Days to tour prospective families and this really develops their social skills and is excellent preparation for the 11+ process.

Our strong academic success means that in recent years pupils have attained places at brilliant senior schools.
