Assessments

The purpose of the assessment is to make sure that the boys who join us will thrive in a selective school with high academic standards.  Most of our assessments for boys entering the Pre-Prep are carried out in small groups. We will hear the boys read and they will be asked to do some maths and writing. We will also look at their socialising and listening skills as the boys play together.

We ask parents to provide a copy of their son's most recent school reports and we will also contact each boy's current school to ask for a reference.

Offers

Successful boys are invited into school for a morning in June to meet their new classmates and teachers, and parents are invited to a welcome evening to meet members of staff and fellow parents.
