Our oldest pupils feel a sense of achievement and privilege in reaching the Senior Department.

The curriculum remains diverse, challenging and entertaining but simultaneously prepares pupils appropriately for their 13+ examinations and scholarships.

Alongside the academic curriculum, we focus on other key areas, notably:

  • Academic Curiosity
  • Charitable Giving
  • Future Aspirations
  • Global Understanding
  • Presentation and Oracy
  • Service to the School
  • Teamwork and Collaboration

These are assessed via the Edge Grove Diploma.

At the end of their time at Edge Grove our Year 8 pupils are socially and academically prepared for the transition to their chosen senior schools, feeling confident that they have been well prepared for the challenges that lie ahead.
