Mid-year and non-standard year group entry
Entry into non-standard years or mid-year is by assessment and parental interview. We may also request a copy of your child’s most recent school report from their current school. If a place is not immediately available, parents may be offered the opportunity to join a waiting list.
Moving to senior school
Quainton Hall and John Lyon – Prep and Senior together: We are an all-through co-educational school from 3 to 18. It is expected that the majority of children who enter Quainton Hall will automatically progress through each stage of the Prep School and transition into John Lyon Senior School. For this to be the case, children need to demonstrate that they have sufficient ability to cope with the demands of the curriculum at each next stage, and have the skills and maturity to do so successfully. In the transition from Prep to Senior, all children will sit an academic assessment, the results of which will assist in the smooth transfer from Year 6 into Year 7. Guidance will be provided to parents about the transition process from Quainton Hall Prep to John Lyon Senior School.
Quainton Hall maintains excellent relationships with other local senior schools in both independent and maintained sectors, and each child will receive the full support of the School as they leave us aged 11, wherever they choose to begin the next stage of their education.
