Primary and Secondary students are about to sit the end of the school year exams.
During the month of June, from 31st of May to 16th of June, the primary school children, starting from Y1 to Y6, are going to take the InCAS tests. These are interactive computer based tests related to Reading and Maths skills, as well as non-verbal reasoning skills. At the school we use these tests for a number of purposes. To identify children who would benefit from extra support, predict results at the Gymnasium entrance examinations or to measure year on year progress.
The Cambridge Progression tests are planned to be taken during the weeks of 7th to 18th June. These paper based tests are taken by our primary students, starting from Y3 to Y6 as well as by our secondary students in Y7 and Y8.
The Cambridge Progression tests provide a summative outcome of the students' English, Maths (and for secondary students Science) curriculum knowledge and understanding as well as the subject specific skills. These tests also provide teachers with information about the curriculum areas that need extra focus.
Czech children will also take the tests focused on Czech language and Czech History and Geography.
We want the testing to be a positive experience for all children. Thus we kindly ask parents not to put too much emphasis on the results and rather motivate children to take part and enjoy it.
They will gain perfect knowledge of English.
Your child will become a global citizen with wide understanding of local and international topics.
We put a strong emphasis on the development on subject specific skills rather than on acquisition of knowledge.
Emphasis on skills development (not just memorising).
Individual approach; school’s ability to motivate for improvement.
Your child will be excited to come to school.
