Preparing Pupils’ for Senior School Success with Oppidan Education

Yesterday, Thursday 16 March, Year 6 pupils embarked on a half day camp delivered by Oppidan Education, which focused on supporting pupils’ leadership and collaboration skills, preparing them for success in the group interview phase that a number of Senior Schools now include as part of their selection process. Pupils participated enthusiastically in the following activities: Olympic Games (communication skills), Mental & Physical Assault Course (Teamwork & Critical Thinking Skills) and Westminster Take Over (Leadership & Oracy Skills). Our collaboration with Oppidan Education means we can continue to provide pupils outstanding support in giving pupils the best possible preparation for success both during the schools’ selection process and with the transition to their Senior School thereafter.
