Entry evaluation for students

Assessment

Brief description of entry evaluation required

Primary school: : The child is given a full tour of the school, in particular the classroom that they will be enrolled into. As well as ensuring that each child feels comfortable and welcomed before the more formal part of the admissions process, the tour allows KTJ to informally assess the student’s ability to communicate clearly in English at a level that is appropriate for their chronological age.
1) Key Stage 1 and Early Years students will have an informal assessment with the Admissions Executive and will be asked to produce a piece of writing, where appropriate.
2) Key Stage 2 students will be asked to sit for a CAT 4 assessment, which covers Maths, English and Non-verbal reasoning and will be asked to produce a piece of writing.
3) Finally, the student will be asked to spend some time with the relevant class teacher for an informal in class assessment.

Secondary schools: Forms 1 – 4: All students are offered a tour of the school. KTJ will then ask the student to sit for KTJ's online assessments which cover English, mathematics and non-verbal reasoning. They take approximately 2 hours to complete and are done in the Registrar’s office. Depending on the student’s level of English, KTJ
will do a follow up 30 minute written assignment and/or a verbal conversation with a member of KTJ's English Additional Language team for 10 minutes. This will allow KTJ to place students appropriately into the correct English language class. All of this is taken into consideration alongside the student’s previous school report.

A levels / Sixth Form: All students are offered a tour of the school. For the Sixth Form programme, KTJ looks at the students forecast or actual IGCSE or SPM results and previous school reports to come to a decision regarding admission. No online tests are necessary for Sixth Form students.
