Entrance Assessment

All prospective students sit our Entrance Assessment at school in small groups. Our friendly staff aim to make it a pleasant morning for the children with break out sessions. The key purpose of the assessment is to identify students’ strengths and place them in the appropriate teaching groups.

The Entrance Assessment consists of 5 parts. Maths, Reading, Verbal Reasoning and Non-Verbal Reasoning are multiple choice and are taken on school laptops, using the ISEB assessment. The final element is a hand-written piece of creative writing.

A walk-through, with examples, is emailed to parents in the week before the Entrance Assessment so that children may familiarise themselves with the ISEB software and multiple choice answer format.

In addition to the Assessment results, the student’s report and reference from their current/previous school is also taken into consideration prior to a formal offer being made.

Results of the Entrance Assessment are usually posted out to families within two weeks. We urge successful applicants to accept their place as a priority, as places are filled on receipt of the signed contract.
