Entry evaluation for students

Assessment test

Brief description of entry evaluation required

The School assesses candidates for entry to check that the curriculum and pace of learning are appropriate for them and that they have the potential to be happy and thrive in the school, contributing co-operatively towards its community. The ability to understand and communicate effectively in English is fundamental to this. The assessment consists of three parts:
a. Written Entrance Examinations in English and Mathematics. These tests are age specific.
b. Previous school reports, including achieved examination results and predicted grades. When possible, a confidential report from the candidate’s current school will be used, otherwise parents will be asked to provide a copy of the most recent school report.
c. An informal interview.

The assessment is designed such that there is no need for special preparation and it is much preferred that candidates do not receive coaching or tuition in advance. It is understood that candidates will have different school backgrounds and different levels of English; the assessment attempts to measure a candidate’s potential to learn and develop. All candidates are assessed in a similar way so that decisions about class groupings and setting can be made. A short passage will be given to read, followed by a comprehension question. This is to test the candidates on their listening and speaking skills.
