Assessment Days

It’s not too late to register for our Assessment Day. 


Prospective children are invited to spend the morning with us on Friday 8th February to and experience a glimpse into life at Moor Allerton Preparatory School. The Assessment Day is all about us understanding just how your child ticks and carefully evaluating where they currently are with their learning.

Whilst the name sounds a little formal, we work hard to make it feel like a very relaxed day with some fun along the way. It includes some essential testing in Mathematics, English (including reading and writing) and Verbal Reasoning – all of which will be Year Two appropriate. We will also devote some time to reflecting on how your child interacts in the classroom and at play. This gives us a “whole picture” and enables your child to relax whilst with us.

It is not an examination for which you need to unduly worry or rely on any extra coaching prior to taking the tests. We are simply looking to determine the stage each child is at with their learning and how they would fare in our Year Three and beyond.  We also would like to begin to thing around how their ongoing learning could be supported to enable them to achieve to their ability level and potentially beyond.  In addition, we are looking for individuals who demonstrate qualities linked to our school ethos and values that are able to make a positive contribution to Moor Allerton’s happy school life. 

The Assessment Day is a morning in school, from 9.00am to 12.00pm. We invite parents to join us at midday when you can meet our Headmistress and teachers for an informal discussion over a cup of tea.

We will aim to notify you of the outcome of the assessment day within 48 hours. Families receiving an offer of a place are asked to respond as soon as possible so that those on the waiting list can be approached.

Registration is required for these entrance assessments. For more information or to register your child please contact the school office on or 0161 445 4521.

The Assessment Day is for children entering into Year 3 September 2019.
