The majority of our children sit for a place at a local grammar school. An offer to attend one of these schools is gained through performing well in two verbal reasoning (VR) selection tests.
These tests are difficult and often a new experience for the child. Preparation is therefore essential to ensure that children perform their best. Of course, preparing for these tests will not make a child more intelligent but experience has shown that children can improve their performance by up to 15% with practice.
VR has been part of our school curriculum since April 2004 and Years 5 and 6 benefit from an hour per week.
