RECORD RESULTS AT SPS including 17 Scholarships!
Snaresbrook Prep has just received the most brilliant set of examination results ever at 11+, including 3 offers to City of London Boys, 1 offer to City of London Girls, 11 places to Bancroft’s (7 Scholarships), 14 places to Forest (5 Scholarships), 8 offers to Chigwell (1 Scholarship) and 8 offers to St Edmund’s (2 Scholarships). Snaresbrook also achieved 2 Scholarships to Braeside and 1 offer to Park. In addition to these we have had a number of Grammar School places offered including Ilford, KEGS, Chelmsford and Westcliff as well as one State School place. Looking back at exam result records, this set has far surpassed what looks like the best results which were in 2007. Snaresbrook Prep is a very popular choice with parents to the extent whereby it could now fill its main point of entry – The Nursery – twice over!
A number of staff have worked with Year 6 this year, their current class teacher, Mr Manning, exclaimed “The class have all worked so hard to achieve these results. Each week, they prepared for the exams, even when the whole school was focusing on the build up to Christmas. I am so pleased that all their hard work has been rewarded. They should all be proud of their achievements.”
Head, Chris Curl, who runs current affairs lessons with the children and discusses how to come across in an interview, stated, “It’s a team effort and shows that what we are doing here and across the school is working. The initiatives and strategies we have put in place are bearing fruit; it’s wonderful for the children and their delighted parents.” He said “I would like to thank all the staff who have taught them from the Nursery upwards”.
Ms Burgess, Deputy Head, has worked with small groups in the class this year, said “It has been very rewarding to see the happy, smiley faces of the children in Year 6 after receiving their amazing results! They all worked incredibly hard and it has brought great success. Staff have worked well as a team, pulling lots of their strengths together, helping the children to succeed. There has been a strong partnership with their parents too. We are extremely proud of the achievements of our Year 6 children!”
Mrs Phillips, Snaresbrook’s Music Co-ordinator, was delighted with three Music Scholarships and said “I would like to thank all of the instrumental staff in supporting the children. I am very excited with the way Music has gone from strength to strength here at Snaresbrook over the last few years.”
“Looking into the record books in the year 2007 we gained 9 scholarship in total but to achieve 17 scholarships is absolutely stunning. What makes these results all the more remarkable is the feedback from the senior schools – that they have all had more applicants this year than ever!” remarked Chris Curl.
One Year 6 pupil said “The rewards of getting into the school I wanted makes all the hard work worth it.” Another child exclaimed “I was so excited when I opened my results envelope that I jumped on my knees”.
Congratulations to all the Year 6 children, their amazing teachers and their overjoyed parents!
