Transition to Senior School

Transition to Senior School

The majority of girls at the Junior School transfer to the Senior School. The current school policy allows for Channing pupils to gain entrance to the Senior School without the requirement to sit the 11+ examination. Junior School girls may apply for Academic and Music Scholarships to the Senior School and several are awarded each year.

There are close links with the Senior School and the girls benefit enormously from the continuation of our unique programmes of study, ethos and whole-school events.

The transition is very smooth from Year 6 to Year 7, as from Reception the girls go to the Senior School for whole- school assemblies and events. Additionally the girls in Key Stage 2 have Music, Drama and ICT lessons at the Senior School, and also eat their lunch there.
