Do you assess prospective pupils for the Senior school?

We assess prospective pupils joining Years 7 to 9 using our own school assessment tests.

Leweston welcomes pupils from a wide range of independent and maintained schools. Our assessments are designed to evaluate core skills in Maths and English and we consider that pupils may have studied different curriculums or be at different stages when assessment takes place.

Whilst Leweston is a non-selective school assessment helps us get to know the pupils before they join us and understand their current level in key areas. There is nothing to prepare or practise for and whilst the assessment is conducted under exam conditions it is always done in a friendly and calm manner.

If you have any questions about assessment or need to make us aware of any individual needs your child has please contact the admissions team. Extra time or other special arrangements can be made as long as we have advance warning of the requirement.
