Senior Schools 

The process for identifying and registering children for senior schools begins formally in Years 5 or 6.  The Headmaster has extensive knowledge of senior schools and is always available for advice on which school would be suitable for your child.

Pinewood has established excellent links with many senior schools, and Headmasters and Headmistresses, Housemasters and Registrars are regular visitors to the school, helping them better understand our ethos and values.

In Year 8, pupils take part in a short programme to facilitate them with the transition to senior school, and annual events for Old Pinewoodians ensure that the friendships formed at Pinewood are maintained well into senior school and beyond.

In recent years over 50% of our leavers have moved on to either Cheltenham College or Marlborough College, with the remainder going to the following: Abingdon, Bradfield, Bryanston, Cheltenham Ladies College, Clifton College, Cokethorpe, Dauntsey’s, Dean Close, Downe House, Eton, Harrow, Heathfield, Kingswood, Magdalen College School, Malvern College, Millfield, Milton Abbey, Monkton Combe, Oundle, Oxford High, Prior Park College, Radley, Rendcomb, Rugby, St Edward’s, Oxford, St Helen & St Katharine, St Mary’s Calne, Sherborne Boys, Sherborne Girls, Shrewsbury, Stowe, Tudor Hall, Westonbirt, Winchester College.
