Entrance Assessments

In line with current Government guidance, we have made some changes to the way in which we are running our entrance assessments this year. We are not changing what we normally assess, but our assessments will now be held over two days (rather than one) and take place in two parts:

1.       Saturday 28th November 2020 – Warrior Learner Assessments and Interviews

Pupils will take part in some individual activities to allow us to assess them as Warrior Learners.  They will also have a friendly, informal interview with a member of staff.  This will give them an opportunity to see the school and meet the staff before sitting the academic assessments after Christmas. No preparation for these activities is required.

2.       Tuesday 5th January 2021 – Academic Assessments

Pupils will sit academic assessments in English, Mathematics and Verbal Reasoning.  In English and Mathematics, the tests are based on the National Curriculum work that the pupils will have been doing in their current school.  No special tutoring is required beyond this.  We would like to reassure you that the evaluation of these assessments will take into account that pupils may have missed valuable lesson time during the past academic year due to COVID-19.

Both of the assessment days will be run following a full Risk Assessment under guidelines for schools.
