Assessment Process

3+ and 4+ Assessments

Once you have applied for a space within our SCPS family, your daughter will be invited to visit us for an informal play based assessment. The visit will last for approximately 30 minutes and will take place within our EYFS setting.

Girls are invited onsite to engage in “free play” as well as playing simple games 1:1 with a member of our EYFS team. There is no need for your daughter to undergo any preparation before their visit – it is our hope and aspiration for every girl who comes onsite to have a positive experience, wanting to come back for more!
