We still need to wait a bit longer for Common Entrance / 13+ results for most of the London prep schools, but most schools have by now at least published their 2012 7+ and 8+ results. I just discovered Eaton House Belgravia has published their results here, and there are a few things to highlight. While it seems this year was very competitive, the school has placed their boys into many of the top London schools, which is especially impressive as it has a high share of internationals and admits pupils on a first come first served basis, not based on assessment. This is true for the Hill House International Junior School as well, and it confirms my view that doing assessments of 3 and 4 year olds is a peculiar and unnecessary thing – but what can we do!!
Highlights of their 8+ results are:
- 3 boys passing on to Colet Court (plus another one in the 7+ exam)
- an incredible 14 boys obtaining offers from Sussex House
- 6 boys moving to Wetherby
- 3 boys enjoying offers from Westminster Under (plus another one via the 7+ exam)
Congratulations to all the boys! Fantastic results, and as I know from some acquaintances with sons at the school, a result of very hard work!
