In Years 7 and 8, boys develop their intellectual maturity and in turn, take greater responsibility for their own personal learning. The exciting school curriculum provides excellent preparation for the GCSE years that the boys will encounter when they move on to their next schools. Underpinned by the Independent Schools Examination Board syllabus, the programme of study is broad, yet challenging and our exciting learning environment equips the boys to not only transfer successfully to the country’s leading senior schools, but also empowers them to thrive when they get there.
Pupils moving on from Davenies in Year 8 are well-prepared for the variety of appropriate entrance tests that greet them as they embark on their next educational journey to their chosen future school. These range from individual school entrance tests to the Common Entrance Exams and Scholarships.
The boys’ ongoing education thrives with the help of the School’s expert specialist teachers and our highly-personalised tutor system. This ensures that each pupil benefits from the day-to-day pastoral care and mentoring provided by their tutor, with whom they work throughout both years of Senior School.
