Our children look forward to donning the symbolic blue jumper that marks their move into the Senior School.
In their final two years our Year 7 and 8 pupils take on real responsibility and we offer many opportunities and experiences to our senior school pupils, including a focused leadership programme and exciting leavers’ events and the array of opportunities available help them mature into well rounded young people, ready and equipped to take on the demands and challenges of life at Senior School.
The majority of Heath Mount students staying on to Year 7 and 8 and take CE and Scholarship exams to senior independent schools at 13+. Our ultimate goal is to ensure that each child gets a place at their recommended first choice Senior School and we also prepare pupils for additional specific entry examinations as required by individual schools.
Scholarships are available as children enter Year 7 for those who are academically gifted, who excel on the sports field or who are identified as being talented artists, or musicians. Our Scholars have opportunities to participate in enrichment activities to refine their skills and develop their talents. These enrichment activities can include workshops, visits to pertinent locations, the development of presentation skills and guest speakers.
