Introducing the Independent School Assessment Packages

Created specifically for independent schools, these packages are designed to support you in benchmarking, tracking progress, and realising potential of pupils at every stage of their journey through school. Each of the packages comprises some of our leading assessments, chosen to match the needs of independent schools, and the different school stages.

Build a rounded, objective profile of your pupils to identify their strengths, pinpoint areas for development and ensure they’re progressing toward maximising their potential. The ability and attainment assessments give each pupil a Standard Age Score and, depending on their age, indicators of likely performance in national tests Key Stage 2 (expected and retrospective) and GCSE.

Pre-Prep

Get an accurate picture of your pupils to give them the best start to their school journey

Building an accurate, objective picture of your new pupils’ abilities means you can start developing their strengths and addressing any areas for development straight away. Our Independent Schools Assessment Package - Pre-Prep contains only assessments selected specifically for independent schools to help you quickly do exactly that, and standardised on pupils in the early years of their school career. The package doesn’t just give you an accurate measure of your pupils; they also include interventions and suggested classroom strategies you can put in place to help maximise their potential.

Prep

Ensure continued progress and prepare your students for the step to senior school

Designed to make sure your pupils are performing to the best of their abilities by combining ability and attainment tests, Independent School Assessment Package – Prep, also enables you to ensure they are coping with the increased demands at this phase. This package is also ideal for establishing a baseline for the next school stage, indeed Many senior schools specifically request CAT4 data from their feeder prep schools. Key Stage 2 indicators are included in some reports and give a useful comparison to the performance of their peers in the state sector. The package also helps you prepare pupils for admissions to, and curriculum demands of, senior school.

Senior

Make sure your pupils are on course to maximise their potential and achieve the best possible grades

Ensuring your pupils are staying on course is key to them achieving qualifications that reflect their true abilities that they and the school can be proud of. Our senior package includes assessments that generate indicators of performance at GCSE, as well as an ‘if stretched’ target. This package also helps screen and make applications for pupils entitled to additional access arrangements in their exams. Our Value Added service (in conjunction with Fischer Family Trust) compares CAT4 data and GCSE results to give a quantifiable measure of the impact your school’s teaching has had on its pupils.
