Entrance Exams for potential students

  • An online computer adaptive entrance assessment (CEM selection assessmnet) which helps us to identify the most able students and provides us with strong indications of each student’s academic potential. These standardised tests are recognised internationally.
  • An English proficiency test to help us compare external candidates with our current students and enables us to assess the level of English competency and any initial support needs for students whose English standard falls below age expectations.
  • A Czech test which enables us to compare external candidates with our current students and allows us to assess the level of Czech as a benchmark for further study.
  • Parents will be asked to attend a short formal meeting with the Head or Deputy Head of Primary or Secondary (as appropriate) once relevant assessments and trial days have been undertaken. Any specific conditions attached to the offer of a place will be discussed.
