Children are assessed informally for entry to Reception in the Pre-Prep department when rising four. It is an hour long play-based session, which we aim to make as fun as possible for the children. Before the assessment children are sent a social story all about St. Paul's Cathedral School and a video tour so that they know a little bit about where they are going.
This assessment takes place in the November before the year of entry. There is a two-form entry at this level. Subject to their attaining the appropriate academic standard, they progress at the age of seven to the Prep School.
