4+ Assessments (Private schools) for entry in 2021
Nibzy135 · 28/09/2020 16:25
I was wondering if anyone is sitting their daughter for Habs, NLCS or Manor Lodge School for entry in 2021?
Any advice from other parents as to what has been covered previously in the assessments?

Yes! For reception entry this September :)

Can you shead some light on what are they looking for? What DD was asked to do? Do they expect to know reading and writing?

Hi Sunlight, it's probably too late for your question but happy to share our experience if you are still interested?
Sunlight01 · 03/03/2021 22:05
@lovetulips Yes please go ahead.
And we got rejected as well.

Bear in mind that this year is probably not like any other year as all schools have had to adjust for COVID. Certainly normally I think schools would all have more group and sport activities as part of the assessment. Anyway this is what they did according to DD:
hopping on one foot
cutting and sticking
drawing objects and shapes
listening to a story and answering questions about it
looking at a picture and finding things on it

@lovetulips thanks for sharing. Is your daughter summer born or winter ? If you don't mind me asking

@sunlight01 she is born at the end of Feb, also forgot to say, they are not expected to read and write, DD's classmate who is way ahead in her in both sat the same assessment but was not offered a place
