This is a friendly, informal assessment not a pass or fail exam.
Assessments last one hour – you bring your child, look around our bright and friendly teaching rooms and when you are happy, you leave your child with their tutor for forty minutes.
After chatting with the teacher, your child will be asked to write about themselves. They will be given a reading age test and be assessed in Maths.
After checking with you, your child will be offered a drink and a biscuit (we do cater for special diets and we always ask your permission).
After forty minutes, you return to a very happy and comfortable child with a fully written report. You then spend twenty minutes with your tutor who will explain the report and how to move forward. You will be offered a variety of appropriate times and days, then offered a class that suits you. During this time your child will show you how well they have done and then work on a given task.
