Hi there. To my knowledge that information is not available. However viewing the KS result league tables will give you a good idea. Schools at the top (ie Heswall St Peters, Oxton St Saviours) will achieve 90%+ pass rate. Those near the bottom 0%.

As far as private schools are concerned (Redcourt, Avalon, Prenton, Birkenhead Prep)they will tell you if you ask I'm sure. Last time I looked Redcourt were quoting 100%. Note some pupils at Birkenhead won't bother with the 11+ if they have been offered a place in the Senior School.

a lot of the private school websites will give the destination of leavers and if it is impressive, the other exams passed by the kids - you won't get a true percentage as you don't know how many took it.

Redcourt sent 16 to St Anselm's and 13 to Upton Hall last year - not sure whether this involved exams

Prenton say 92% + indies - still not sure how many took the test

Avalon give their's here http://avalon-school.co.uk/parents/academic-results/
(note they say all who took indie exams were offered a place - this will be by very careful choice of school...)

FYI to the best of my knowledge the Redcourt pupils will have had to take the 11+ equivalent exams for Upton and St Anselm's. Although Redcourt and St Anselm's are closely related, Redcourt is not state funded and St Anselm's is. This presumably rules out any straight transfers (BPS to BS for example).

Thanks- sounds like the St Anselm's transfers will have done a test - wasn't aware of what the entrance reqs were for there

Thanks for your prompt replies. It is interesting that Redcourt and St Anselms have come up in the answers, as I am considering moving my son to Red Court for years 5 and 6 and wondered how likely he would then be to get into St Anselms.
Regards OT

Basically Avalon, Prenton and Redcourt exist for the 11+ and will devote much time and effort to it. That's not to say it's impossible to fail!

It is worth saying that the entrance exam for St Anselms is not 11+ in style (tho Upton Hall is), so Redcourt may not be so good for Calday/Wirral as Avalon/Prenton.

This is true however Birkenhead School will teach them the maths which is required certainly on the Upton Hall papers which simply is not taught until after the 11+ in state schools.
My daughter had completed the Upton exam after 30 mins whilst her old classmates from state were scratching their heads as the poor souls hadn't been taught what was on the paper despite being tutored.

Have you looked around St Anselms ? It's very how can I put this ... Catholic, you really wouldn't go there unless you were devote.
