While a few boys leave Aldro to enter their senior schools aged 11, the majority continue to age 13, aiming to take the ISEB Common Entrance exam or to gain Scholarship entry to their senior schools. In two sets of practice or 'trial' exams, one set in the Christmas term and one in the Lent term. The exam practice allows considerable opportunity for any weaknesses to be identified.
Aldro's record, showing consistently strong Common Entrance and Scholarship results, speaks for itself. We are anxious to maintain this, and so Aldro's teachers are constantly looking at the needs of the senior schools and assessing how these can best be met.
The Common Entrance results in 2019 were excellent again with all boys passing to their first-choice school, and an abundance of A*s, A’s and B’s. Many congratulations to all boys and their teachers.
