Junior School Assessment
The assessment process is a chance for us to get to know your daughter, and for your daughter to become comfortable and familiar with the School.
The Junior School assessment process is split into two sessions. Firstly, your daughters will join us for a morning, to sit a series of online assessments in English and Mathematics; she will then join us for a Saturday morning to take part in classroom and group activities, which reflect the experiences that take place within our everyday lessons. She will also be able to meet with other girls who are planning to join us at the same time as her and be in her form group.
In assessing your daughter’s current ability level, we will take account of her skills in:
- Creative writing
Other activities that will take place during the assessment day are:
- Art – an opportunity to take part in a creative art activity
- Dance and Drama – the chance to work in groups
- Science - investigation of a scientific problem, and a discussion of findings and solutions
