During your child’s assessment appointment, you will also have an opportunity to tour the school campus, and personally meet our Headmaster.

Format of Assessment

We assess each child’s learning potential, including his or her English language ability, reading/writing comprehension, mathematics and problem-solving skills, cognitive skills, and social skills.

Method of Assessment

  • Year 1 and Year 2 applicants are assessed in a group setting for their abilities in numeracy, cognitive, interpersonal and social skills. Children are also assessed for their understanding and use of English.
  • Applicants applying for Year 3 to Year 6  undergo a written assessment covering English, Mathematics and Non-Verbal Reasoning.
