St Peter's Preparatory School in Lympstone is celebrating after a large number of its Year 8 pupils were offered scholarships to the area's senior schools.
There are 27 Year 8 students, who will be leaving St Peter’s on July 6. Between them, the pupils have been offered 23 scholarships to senior schools, including Blundell’s, Exeter School, Millfield, Stover School, Taunton School and Wellington School.
St Peter’s is non-selective yet, earlier this year, 13 of its Year 8 pupils sat Exeter School’s entrance exam and were all offered places.
Head, Mrs Charlotte Johnston, said: “Even more cause for celebration is that four of our pupils achieved academic awards to Exeter School. Four of our children have also succeeded in passing the entrance examination to Colyton Grammar School and one to Torquay Boys’ Grammar School.
“It is, perhaps, not surprising that our current Year 8s have had such scholarship success given that they are currently preparing to take their GCSE in critical thinking this summer, which is three years early.”
