Does anyone have any experience of this school. DS is in Year two at a local state primary. Considering private, if I can get a bursary. I have no idea what is on the test -- Maths and English, but that still leaves the field wide open. Anyone know what they will be looking for.
My interest in this school is primarily for smaller classes and mire sport.
I did. They invited DS to a open day where he joins a current year 2 class for the day. And has a maths and English quiz somewhere during the day. I'm just not sure what to expect on the quizzes. I guess I'll find out when he goes.
I’m sure he’ll be fine, probably similar to what he’s been doing at school anyway. I saw your post and thought I’d bump it, I don’t know the school well so don’t have more to add, things often get missed in here, you might do better in chat.
Most likely he will be asked to write a story and draw a picture that goes with it. Not a bad idea to help him practice writing his own stories. Always a good idea to do something like a bake a cake the day before so when they ask what do you like to do with mummy he doesn't say the dreaded "I don't know." It's good to talk through some of his favourite things and why they are his favourite things. I should say I don't know this school particularly but they all seem to follow this format roughly.
