Year 7 Assessment day programme

Wednesday 4 January 2017

0845-0915       Arrive and register in the Dining Hall

Parents move to the Pamoja Hall for a brief talk by the Head, Dr Katy Ricks.                

After this parents depart.

0930-1515       During this time candidates will, in rotation, take part in the following:

English test (one hour)    

Maths test (one hour)

Verbal reasoning test (one hour)

Group interview (40 minutes) **

Morning break

Lunch

Tour of the campus 

1515       Parents arrive to collect candidates from the Dining Hall where there will be tea available.

** During the group interviews five or six candidates will be given a few tasks to do as a group and will be observed by two members of staff.  The observers are looking here, not for academic strength, but for candidates who are good team-players, willing to contribute ideas and to listen to those of others.  No preparation for this task is necessary or advised.

Candidates who have been granted extra time or word processing provision will be accommodated within the above timetable but will have a slightly earlier start.  This will be explained to parents of these candidates nearer the time.

You will find past Maths and English papers and syllabus information here.  There are no sample Verbal Reasoning papers but any of the 11+ practice papers such as the Bond or NFER series will be useful preparation.
