Due to Covid, Haileybury School have changed their admissions process for Year 7 Entry.
Written papers for English and Maths, along with the Reasoning test, will be replaced by an online test called CAT4.
This is to be taken by applicants in November, preceding the September entry.
In addition to this, candidates will be asked to submit one piece of work which they are particularly proud of. It could be an essay, a book review, an artistic portfolio, a science project write up or similar.
Your child will also be expected to submit a 5 minute presentation on a topic of their choice, which will provide the school with more details about their personality and interests.
There will also be an interview.
Haileybury School » The 11+ Assessment: CAT4
To join in Year 7, your child will be asked to complete an online assessment called Cognitive Abilities Test (CAT), which assesses skills in Verbal Reasoning, Non-Verbal Reasoning, Spatial Reasoning and Quantitative Reasoning
– The Verbal Reasoning section examines problem-solving skills using words.
– The Non-Verbal Reasoning section covers problem-solving using shapes and patterns, rather than words.
– The Spatial Reasoning section assesses your child’s ability to identify shapes and how they change.
– The Quantitative Reasoning section tests their ability to solve problems using numbers.
