We take time to prepare a crisp, cogent and compelling summary of your child and their abilities. But we need hard evidence of these abilities if we are to promote your child effectively to your chosen schools.
Admissions registrars need to know where you son/daughter is placed alongside the competition. We use widely-recognised, standardised tests in English, mathematics, and verbal and non-verbal reasoning. We also expect to see samples of each candidate's creative writing and we will seek references from each pupil's current teachers.
We will also assess your child's performance at interview.
It is not just about promoting your child, it is diagnosis as well. Our assessment enables us to identify the areas where coaching and tutoring will be particularly effective. For instance, after the tests we may suggest to you that your child needs to invest further time in learning conversational English. We might also advise that interview practice would help. We can put you in touch with relevant tutors, overseas and in the UK, and we can help secure places at appropriate UK summer schools.
