Academic Success

St. Hugh's School has an enviable record of always getting children into their first choice senior school, irrespective of whether it is state or independent, at the end of Year 8.

Many of the children gain scholarships for their chosen secondary schools. These are traditionally academic, art, music, sport or general scholarships to some of the leading schools in the country with 34 scholarships awarded within the last two years from a cohort of 47 pupils.

We also have an enviable track record of securing places for our children who may have missed out on the 11+ for grammar school, with every child who has come to us at year 6 for this purpose, passing their 13+ test.

In recent years pupils from St. Hugh’s have joined a wide range of independent senior schools including:

Ampleforth

Barnard Castle

Felsted

Kingham Hill

Lincoln Minster
