Destination Schools

Eaton House Belgravia Pre-Prep is non-selective and parents can register their child from birth.

We send boys to an extraordinary range of destination schools, and the 2018 results, which were our best for five years, show that some 40% of our 7+ and 8+ leavers received offers from Westminster Under or St Paul's School, amongst many other fine schools.

11+ at Belgravia Prep

A large number of our boys leave for these schools at 7+ and 8+, and they always will, but this year we opened Belgravia Prep at our Eaton Gate site, taking boys on from age 8 to age 11. Parents will now have an additional option to let the boys stay on to sit 11+ examinations as well as the traditional 7+ and 8+ examinations.

We firmly believe that boys blossom academically at different rates and that this ability – to enter boys for examinations at 7+, 8+ or 11+ – provides the ultimate comfort for parents. They can now make decisions taking a short- or a long-term view, as their sons' interests reveal themselves over time.

We also feel that emotional maturity can be a factor in entry to the top schools, especially at interview, and that some boys really benefit from a few more years here at Eaton House Belgravia. There is no 'one size fits all' approach here – each boy has a developmental rate that suits him and we are attuned to that, after more than a century of educating boys. The best thing is to make any decision on the welfare of the individual boy in question, without being swayed by other parents' ideas and plans.

When they do come to sit the 11+ examinations, prep boys who have stayed on will be confident and fully prepared. As a result, they will also be more likely to achieve the outcome of an offer from the school of their choice.
