At the age of 13 our pupils go on to a wide variety of senior schools, both boarding and day, co-educational and single sex. Academically, we are non-selective but very successful, with an excellent record in both Common Entrance and Scholarship.

The hallmark of a Terrington education is that every child is given the opportunity to develop their talents and interests wherever they lie and to progress to the school which suits them best. The Headmaster meets with all parents, usually during the first term in Year 5, to discuss options for the child's future and to begin an ongoing dialogue.

The Headmaster and other key members of staff regularly visit senior schools to gain an up-to-date understanding of the schools, and senior school staff are regularly invited to Terrington Hall to meet parents including at our biennial Senior Schools' Fair.

A strength of our school is the breadth and quality of senior schools to which we send pupils. Please find listed below our most recent destination schools for our Year 8 pupils, in alphabetical order.
