Is there any way of finding out leavers destinations for a state school?

Specifically related to London - I can't find any information on the school website so I wondered if there was any way other than emailing the specific school?

Some have them on the school website. Although I would just email them directly. It would give you a feel for the school in their response.

Our local schools list the previous year's leavers and their destinations in their sixth form prospectus. Have you looked at these?

Sorry, I should have said it was primary. They had a few on their walls but ended at 2014. I guess I will have to email them - I just feel a bit awkward as they knew my daughter was sitting for a selective school and were a bit rude about it!

I think if you email your prospective school and ask how many pupils pass 11+/ get into selective schools at 11 you are going to have 'That Parent' attached to your SIMS profile before your DD even starts.

Can't you just look at the data for how many exceed expectations in SATs and assume that a proportion of them would 'make it' into a selective- it will give you a rough number.

Alternatively, just chill out a bit.

You need to consider that their destinations at age 11 is down to parental choice and is outside the control of the school.

Thank you for your suggestions. The school which my daughter has been offered a place at over half over the places have come from the three feeder prep schools locally, so I'm not sure how many would come from the state school, if any. As there aren't any good state secondarys in the area I wanted to ensure I wouldn't be causing extra stress by putting her in a difficult situation by not preparing her at 11 and having no alternative. The other selectives are even more competitive from what I've heard. I will just leave it I think.

I think were saying in another thread your daughter had a place at PHS? If you live on the area there are definitely good state secondary state schools in the area! I think most of the state primary's around there have leavers destinations on their website - ours definitely does.

She does - from playground chat most people seem to be thinking of private for secondary as the general consensus was that secondary state wasn't quite as good here. Sorry if I'm wrong about that though. Can you recommend any schools in particular? Could be a game changer if we are able to avoid private (if we even get a place at the state primary).
