Academic Performance & Scholarships

Key Stage 1 and 2 Standardised Test results

The Key Stage 1 and 2 Standardised Tests provide us with an objective measure of attainment. Our purpose is to educate and equip children with the skills they will need for the longer term, so we resist the temptation to over-prepare specifically for these tests. Nevertheless, they provide a very useful indicator of progress. Teaching at Blundell’s Prep School encompasses all that the National Curriculum entails, but goes so much further than this, to ensure that every pupil aspires to their full potential, regardless of national expectations.

As a non-selective school with a broad intake, we are delighted that our academic results continue to show the majority of children consistently achieving above national average standards.

All prep school pupils are invited to sit the Scholarship exam which takes place in January. For further details, please visit the Blundell’s Senior School Scholarship Information page. We are celebrating scholarship success again this year. Twelve pupils have been recognised by Blundell’s Senior School in the form of an Academic Scholarship. Five pupils have been awarded a Music Scholarship.
