We are delighted to share the results of the selective assessments for independent senior school places that many of our Year 6 children have undertaken in the last few months.  We are very proud of the children’s success; they truly deserve this recognition of their hard work 

Banstead Prep School isn’t a feeder for any particular schools, we believe in supporting the children to move on to the best school for them.  For the third year running, the number and diversity of schools offering places to BPS children demonstrates our continued success in achieving this aim. 

Between them, 20 children achieved a total of 36 offers of places and seven scholarship awards at selective independent schools: 

School  Offered places  Scholarships 
Box Hill School  2  Headteachers Award (Maths)
Headteacher’s Award (Interview) 
Caterham School  4   
Cedars  1   
City of London Freemen’s School  1   
Downsend School  3  Arts 
Dunottar School  11  Sport 
Epsom College  2   
Ewell Castle  3  Academic 
Hampton School  1   
Kingswood House  1   
Reigate Grammar School  2  Combined Academic, Sport and Headmaster’s Scholarship for Art 
St John’s School, Leatherhead  5  Sport 
  36  7 


We are thrilled for the seven children who received scholarships: Maddy achieved a phenomenal triple scholarship at Reigate Grammar School, with a combined award for Academic excellence, for talent in Sport and the Headmaster’s Art Scholarship.  Jack Y was offered an Academic Scholarship at Ewell Castle School.  A Sports scholarship was offered to Eve at St John’s School, Leatherhead and for Jack H at Dunottar School.  Laurie was recognised for his talent in the Arts by Downsend School and Box Hill bestowed a Headteacher’s Award to Abby for Maths, and to Amelie for performance at interview.  Many congratulations to all of you on this outstanding achievement. 

Owen did fantastically well to pass the 11+ grammar school eligibility test and is waiting, along with seven other children, to hear about state school places today.
