We are maintaining our outstanding performance as a leading Prep School, not only in the area but nationally. Most children leave Terra Nova at the end of Year 8 (age 13) and this year’s pupils proved particularly successful.
Throughout this year
a number of senior pupils sat scholarships in Art, DT, Sport and Academic to senior schools, both within the region and beyond. This year, Claire Dixon was awarded a DT Scholarship, Emma Rosson an Art Scholarship and Woody Lewis an Academic Exhibition and a Sports Exhibition, all to Repton School. Mark Munro won an Academic Exhibition and an All-Rounder Scholarship to Malvern College, Fern Nuttall was awarded an All-Rounder Scholarship to Sedbergh School, Max Parsonage received a Sports Scholarship to Shrewsbury School. Perri Rowe received an All-Round Scholarship to Ellesmere College and Callum Speak achieved a Headmaster’s Award to Sedbergh School. Along the way, pupils in the year also won other Awards prior to their final year, with Bethany Begg-Finnon winning a Sports Scholarship to AESG and a CB Fry Scholarship to Repton and Woody Lewis also achieving a CB Fry Exhibition to Repton.
The pupils also had to sit demanding Scholarship or Entrance Examinations to secure their places at senior school. They went onto schools far and wide, including Rugby School in Warwickshire, Stowe School in Buckinghamshire, Repton School in Derbyshire, Shrewsbury School in Shropshire, Malvern College in Worcestershire, Sedbergh School in Cumbria, Uppingham School in Rutland, Manchester High School for Girls in Manchester and Cheadle Hulme in Cheadle. Their results were absolutely outstanding with 78% A’s and B’s.
In addition, the school enjoyed more success with Georgia Turner from Year 6 awarded a Sports Scholarship to Cheadle Hulme and Matthew Clark and Catherine McEwan, both from Year 7, achieving CB Fry Exhibitions to Repton School.
Headmaster Andrew Lewin commented, “The results speak for themselves. All of the pupils have shown incredible determination, dedication and hard work. To say I feel proud of these pupils would be an understatement. We have received scholarships and awards in Academic, Art, DT and Sport, serving as testament to the all-round education we offer here at Terra Nova. We believe every child is unique and we are committed to finding the strengths and skills of every individual, then supporting them in reaching their full potential. I believe our Year 8 leavers are testament to this and we wish them every success for the future.”
