Steps for Applying
• Required Documentation
The assessment differs greatly depending on the year group that the application is being made for:
Prospective FS1 / FS2 students will be asked to come into school to spend a period of time in the classroom environment with the class teacher. This assessment lasts between 20 min to 30 min.
The main focus for the assessors will be how the applicants behave socially in the classroom environment, and how they are developing physically. There will be a short one-on one assessment for each student in which they will have the opportunity to display their physical development, creative development and knowledge of the world. Although some level of English for children starting FS1 is a clear advantage, it is not a matter of priority for assessors at this stage. There will also be a short one-on-one assessment for the applicant in which they will be expected to illustrate that they are ready to access the FS2 curriculum in the BICC School by showing their development in English communication and language, Mathematics, expressive arts, and design and physical development.
Prospective Year 1 and Year 2 students will be asked to come into school for an individual one-on-one assessment with a Key Stage One practitioner or member of the Senior Management Team. The applicant will be expected to illustrate that they are ready to access the year appropriate curriculum by showing their development in English speaking, listening and understanding skills.
Completing English tasks related to reading, writing and Phonics.
Completing a series of mathematical tasks, modelling their creative development and proving that they are adequately developed physically.
Prospective Year 3 to Year 6 students will be asked to come into school for an individual one-on-one assessment with a Key Stage Two practitioner or a member of the Senior Management Team. The applicant will also be asked to sit a Cognitive Ability Test, an English assessment and a Mathematics assessment.
Prospective Year 7 to Year 9 students will be asked to come into school for an individual one-on-one assessment with a member of the Senior Management Team. The applicant will also be asked to sit a Cognitive Ability Test, an English assessment and a Mathematics assessment.
