Moving through the ranks - plotting progress from Prep to Senior

Life at senior school can seem a long way away, for both pupil and parent, when you’re just setting foot on the educational journey.

But time passes quickly, the preparation for teenage years beginning from the first moments of the earliest Junior Years. This careful transition, and the dedicated behind-the-scenes players and planners who make it all possible, is discussed in this term’s School House Magazine’s  piece, ‘Prepped and ready to go’ on page 50.

Within the article, Headteacher of Kilgraston School, Dorothy MacGinty, notes that pupils nearing Senior School age are ready to spread their wings with “long spells at home during lockdowns having been detrimental to them.”

Additional boarding uptake towards the end of Junior School years is cited as frequent preparation for ‘big school,’ “a 24/7 learning experience,” together with the encouragement of increased responsibility and independence.

It’s all in the groundwork.
