Every prospective pupil starts with a detailed assessment which reveals the child’s potential and pinpoints any areas of weakness. The assessment lasts for three hours and is conducted by experienced staff in a relaxed, stress-free atmosphere. A series of tests examines the child’s proficiency in Mathematics, English and Verbal Reasoning. A report and recommendations are drawn up and discussed with parents at a subsequent meeting, when the child is not present.
Although the Assessment is a penetrating analysis of the child’s performance and potential, it has been very carefully designed to ensure that children enjoy it, and that they derive from it some sense of achievement. We also offer a re-assessment to those children who have had six months or more tuition with us. The report will measure the progress made and indicate what further tuition, if any, is required.
