Durlston Court - Preparatory School

Leavers' Destinations

As a Preparatory School, we are committed to "preparing" our pupils, in every way, for their first choice Senior School and are proud of our successful track record of achievement.  

In the past 2 years Durlstonians have been awarded Scholarships in areas including Academics, Sports, Performing Arts, Music, Art and All-Round as they transferred to Senior Schools

Durlston Court feeds a large number of senior schools and has excellent links with many of the leading schools in the South of England. Our Headmaster works closely with parents, discussing the many routes available and offering advice and guidance. Lessons are given to support pupils taking entrance and scholarship examinations.

This ranges from entrance into the nearby Bournemouth and Poole Grammar Schools at the end of Year 6, (where children are given specific curriculum guidance for the 11+ exams and are encouraged to join the Reasoning Club that runs as an activity), to preparation for entrance and scholarship exams to some of the most prestigious schools in the country. All children are fully prepared for transfer to senior schools.
