Event description

Description

Many girls and boys at school in London will face major exams in Year 6. For many top day schools 11+ (Year 7) is their biggest entrance point. For those that are looking to move at 13+ (Year 9), they are increasingly likely to face Pre-Tests in Year 6 at the same time as those taking 11+. We want you to feel fully prepared when it comes to this crucial point.

We will guide you through the whole process, from choosing the right schools for your son or daughter, interpreting the different assessment requirements and timeframes, to preparing effectively in English, Maths, Reasoning and Interviews. We will also talk about the computerised tests (produced by CEM or ISEB) that some schools now use, including St Paul’s, St Paul’s Girls, JAGS and Eton.

During the session Padraic Fahy will talk through the strategy required for success in Year 6, be it in 11+ entrance exams or Pre-Tests for 13+ entry. Questions to be covered include:

- boarding or day school

- where will my child be happiest?

- when should we start preparation?

- how do we prepare for Verbal and Non-Verbal Reasoning tests?

- does my child need to cover extra Maths?

- what should we look for at the Open Day?

- how can I prepare my child for the interview without them appearing ‘coached’?

Padraic Fahy is Holland Park’s Senior Consultant. Padraic was Deputy Master at Westminster Under School, a selective preparatory school of 290 boys aged 7 to 13; and more recently was Headmaster of Cameron House, a co-educational pre-prep and prep school in Chelsea, London. With over 15 years’ teaching and leadership experience, Padraic has an outstanding understanding of the UK’s independent schools landscape.
