Entry for girls and boys into Years 1 to 6 is by means of an assessment, which takes place after the child is registered.
Prospective pupils will be invited to the school to spend a day with their current year group, participating in a whole range of activities. During this time they will also complete their assessments. There is no need for special preparation and the atmosphere is informal.
The age-standardised assessments include papers in English and Maths, and they will be familiar to the children. We will use the results to assess their suitability for King’s Hawford and, if necessary, to discuss any support they may need with their academic studies.
There is time for a break with a drink and a snack in the morning and a cooked meal at lunchtime. The experience is organised so that the children have a wonderful day experiencing much that King’s Hawford has to offer.
