Years 1 – 6 assessments (currently)
Your daughter will join us for a ‘taster day’, which will include an assessment in English and Mathematics. There’s no need to prepare for this. She’ll have a fun day with one of our current classes and find out more about school life here.

Her interview and reference will also help us to assess whether our school is one in which she will thrive.
