The Mall School has announced that it is to move from being a 13+ school to an 11+ school. The current Year 4 boys will be the first to leave at the end of Year 6 in July 2019.
Over the past 18 months the school has undertaken internal and external assessment of the local market and conditions for senior schools which concluded that senior schools are experiencing an increase in demand for places at 11+ driven largely by parents’ preferences. In response, the supply of places at 11+ has increased.
Headmaster David Price said, “We want to play to our educational and pastoral strengths and secure the best future for all our boys. It is our strong belief that in making this structural change now, the ethos of the school will remain intact and our strong record of success and ability to bring out the best in every boy will be maintained.”
The Mall School will continue to offer boys an excellent all-round education with a rich and challenging curriculum with strong pastoral care focused on each boy’s happiness and well-being. As an independent prep school, The Mall will continue to prepare boys for a range of academically selective senior schools.
A positive move towards 11+
