What are the real benefits of staying at a prep school until 13+?

Date Posted: Monday 03 October 2022

The fact that so many parents send their children to prep schools until 13+ is an indication of their value and the difference they can make to your child’s future.


At Rose Hill School we place particular value on the importance of our Years 7 & 8. As such we have a fee structure that enables more children to experience this opportunity.


In September 2020 we reduced our fees to by 50% per year for Years 7 & 8. In addition, we offer Awards to pupils who show promise in various subjects such as Sports, Drama, Art and Music.


All subjects in Years 7 & 8 are led with specialist teaching staff and our class sizes are lower than that of a senior school. This can be important for all children regardless of academic ability. Rose Hill School is smaller than our senior equivalents and we make sure no child ‘gets lost in a crowd’.


During the last two years at Rose Hill School pupils have the opportunity to take on roles of responsibility. Being the top year of a prep school at age 12 or 13 as opposed to being the youngest members of the senior school community encourages maturity and independence.


Academically, attending Rose Hill School to 13+ means that your child has access to excellent teachers and a broad, rich and exciting curriculum. Our facilities are fantastic, with enviable sporting amenities and large grounds including outdoor education and space for self-discovery.
