Warwick School is an independent day and boarding school in Warwick. It is believed that it was founded in 914 AD, which makes it the fifth-oldest surviving school in the country. Its alumni list is long and impressive, comprising eminent diplomats, authors, businessmen and sportsmen. [1]


The academic provision at Warwick School is broad, covering disciplines that reflect the school’s culture of achievement and actively prepare students for whatever endeavour they may choose to pursue in their later lives. Lessons are thus vigorously delivered to cater for individual preferences, whether they be computing, science, technology, maths or languages.


The abundant co-curricular life further supports on-site learning, allowing students to pick from a plethora of club activities, including debating, Opera Club, Politics Society, swimming, chess and Animation Club. CCF and Duke of Edinburgh’s Award opportunities are also on offer, boosting pupils’ abilities by challenging them to always do better as both team members and leaders. [2]


Warwick School regularly organises trips, tours and excursions, aiming to equip students with valuable and, above all, positive experiences as they progress through the various stages of their education. Destinations have included China, Sri Lanka, Singapore and Malaysia, boosting the cohort’s cultural awareness as vital to the development of their all-round personalities.

The CEM Select assessment will cover the following areas:


  • Verbal Reasoning
  • Non-Verbal Reasoning
  • Numerical Reasoning


The Verbal Reasoning section of the test assesses your child’s ability to solve problems using words, with a special focus on depth and breadth of vocabulary.


The Non-Verbal Reasoning section requires your child to solve problems using shapes and patterns with a main focus on one specific question type.


The Numerical Reasoning section assesses your child’s ability to solve problems using numbers and arithmetic.
