From September 2023, Stroud School will move to a Nursery to Year 6 model, which will provide an opportunity to further enhance the links between Stroud and its senior school, King Edward VI, Southampton (KES).

Stroud has announced that as it moves to a true 3-18 school structure, Stroud pupils will have the unique opportunity to access a Head's Recommendation route for entry to KES for Year 7, without the risks and anxiety associated with an external examination route.

Stroud has a strong tradition of preparing the majority of its pupils to transition to the senior school that best suits them as learners at age 11.

It will continue to maintain this support with an enhanced programme to prepare pupils for their next steps, throughout Year 5 and Year 6, including via its new Head's Recommendation admissions route to King Edward VI School.

Further details are available from the school.
