As part of the assessment process for Year 7 entry, your child will be asked to complete a banding test called CAT4. 


Based on performance in this test, schools can judge pupils’ progress over the academic year and hence decide on their setting and streaming (according to ability). 


This assessment is an effective way for schools to understand pupils’ strengths and weaknesses and to personalise learning and adapt teaching.
