How academic assessments work

Children take the online Academic Assessment in modules, which can be taken in any order, with breaks in between. Questions adapt to become harder or easier, depending on how many the child gets right. It never feels too hard or too easy, so is usually a stress-free and enjoyable experience.

Afterwards, you will receive a detailed report about your child, plus a follow-up meeting or phone call with an experienced teacher to discuss the results.

School choices and your 11+ campaign

We can offer you guidance on future school choices and, where appropriate, provide an action plan for your 11+ campaign.
