Leavers’ Destinations

On leaving Chesham Preparatory School our children go on to a variety of schools. The Headmaster and Deputy Head (Academic) are always happy to meet with parents to discuss their children’s strengths and suggest suitable future schools. Approximately 2/3 will qualify for Grammar School places, but not all will take up these places, and will either stay at Chesham Prep or move to independent schools. This year 43% went to Grammar Schools, 20% to Independent schools, 12% to State Senior schools, and 22% stayed at Chesham Prep. Below is a list of the most recent schools our children have transferred to.

ISI Report 2016

CPS, I’ll miss you.  I’ll never forget anything that you’ve given me, all these precious memories that I will remember forever, and my friends.  I’m really sad to finally leave.  Goodbye CPS.

A Year 6 leaver

I would like to say thank you to Chesham Prep – without you I wouldn’t be half the person I am today – and thank you for igniting my passion in sport.
