3 - Assessments
Your daughter will be asked to take part in a playgroup session with the class teachers lasting approximately one hour. We will assess numeracy skills, early phonics awareness, handwriting, conversation skills and interaction with other pupils. We also request a report from your daughter’s nursery.
Assessments this year took place outside in our EYFS playground which will be divided into four separate zones, socially distanced in November. We select girls who we believe have the aptitude and potential to benefit from a Sydenham High School education.
4 - Offers
The results of the assessment process will are posted home two weeks after your daughter’s assessment.
The deadline for response to all 4+ offers is December each year.
