11+ Preparation

As the girls reach their last year at The Village Prep the school seeks to make every moment count through enrichment and responsibility.

Exam preparation

Between the months of November and January, the girls sit their 11+ entry exams. Each week girls complete practise examinations and the nature of these assessments is tailored to each child’s need. Therefore, each girl receives the support and input they need to demonstrate their full potential during this process.

Alongside formal exam preparation, the girls are given additional opportunities which both enhance their school experience and provide excellent preparation ahead of 11+ exams and interviews.


Every Third Former (Year 6) is given a position of responsibility, be it Head Girl, Class Prefect, Librarian, Chronicler, Sports captain or House captain.

Village Business Award

The Village Business Award (VBA) also takes place in the Autumn Term. In this scheme the girls form a business with a £250 investment provided by the school. They then use this to research, design and create their own products that are sold at the VBA festival, with the profits going to local charities of their choice, which last year totalled £850.

Remembrance Play

Girls work collaboratively to produce a piece of theatre which explains why we remember and also explores what life was like during WW1 and WW2.

Beyond 11+

In the Spring Term and Summer , the curriculum broadens and opportunities include:

  • Shakespeare in Spring
  • PGL residential trip
  • Upper School Musical
  • Sports Day
  • Prize Giving
