Pupils joining the Nursery School or Pre-Prep classes come in for a taster session prior to joining when they have an opportunity to meet the staff and other pupils and take part in classroom activities. An informal assessment takes place at this stage for Pre-Prep pupils. We anticipate that all children coming into the Nursery School will continue into Reception if at all possible. The Queen’s College community is a very close and friendly one and the children build on relationships they have made.
All children are asked to register before coming in for a taster and assessment day. Here, during the lessons, they have informal classroom assessments. However, we keep these very low key so that the children are often unaware that they are being assessed.
