We will run a practice test for boys, for both the Verbal Reasoning and Non-Verbal/Spatial Reasoning papers, at this school. This practice is purely intended as a familiarisation exercise and the papers will not be formally marked; however, the boys will have an indication of how well they have done as several questions and answers are discussed. There is a small charge of £25 to take part in the practice test, but this will be refunded should your son join the school in September 2020.
