All children at the Centre attend for Maths and English. We then assess the Year 5 pupils for Verbal and Non Verbal Reasoning. Depending on how your child fares on this assessment determines whether or not we give them weekly Verbal or Non-Verbal Reasoning. Year 4 children are also given a Verbal Reasoning and General Knowledge paper during their lesson to see where weaknesses are for future 11+ Training
