How will my child be assessed?

Pre-Prep (4-7 Years)

After you have visited the department with your child, we invite your son or daughter to return to spend a taster session with us before registration at the School.

Boys and girls considering joining Years 3 to 6 share a Taster Day with us. On successful completion of which we then invite them to spend a second day with us; on this day various assessments will be carried out. Before a place can be offered a report from your son or daughter’s current school is required to ensure we can be confident of providing for the needs of each individual child.
