Anyone? I havent prepped her for the assessment so hoping it really is what the say it is and they arent going to expect her to read or write??

Hi mumofthreegoingmad,
I feel your angst!
We did the assessment last year (can't quite believe it's a year ago we went through the stress), we really liked this school and it was our first choice as a back-up. I like that it is quite small and yet they offer a very broad curriculum, also their 11+ results really speak for themselves.
I would find it very difficult to tell you what exactly they did. I know my daughter came out with a picture she had done during the assessment but other than that have no idea.
To put your mind at rest though I can tell you my daughter is an August born and therefore one of the youngest and relatively shy, I thought she looked like a little lost lamb when she went in and was extremely anxious as to how she would get on, despite this she did get offered a place and no she could not read or write so please do not be scared off by other posts regarding 4+ on these forums.
I believe they are looking for girls that show a willingness to want to learn and potential, not something that you can prep for.
Hope this helps & Good Luck xxx

Thanks so much sunsmile1. That does ease the stress (just a bit!) Did you end up sending your daughter there, or somewhere else? You said it was your backup? Thank you.

No, we ended up turning the place down as my daughter was very fortunate and got offered a place at our top choice. I do know the stress you feel though, it is horrible......hope all goes well for you x
