Edenhurst is in a unique position in being able to prepare children for a variety of independent schools. Look here to see our recent results .


We are proud of our record of NURTURING and INSPIRING the children to ACHIEVE the results they want and 2016-17 is no exception, albeit with a few Prep 6 pupils still to take their exams.


Soon, I will be holding formal talks with Prep 5 parents about the destinations for their children and laying out the timeline for application and entry. Of course, the process of preparing the children, academically, for their chosen school began several years ago, even in our Nursery!


You will be able to view the details of our preparation from Prep 3 onwards here along with the timeline for applications. The next event will be the visit of representatives of around a dozen Senior Schools to Edenhurst on Monday 15th May - parents of Prep 4 and 5 children will be invited to come along and obtain information from them.


That will be closely followed by a Parent Workshop for Prep 5 parents in which Mr. Barnes and I will be highlighting the key remaining points of the process to ensure a smooth transition to the next exciting phase of the children’s education.
