Familiarisation Papers

These papers have been made available to ensure that all children have an opportunity to familiarise themselves with the format of our up and coming tests.  They are NOT definitive and the inclusion of any question types are examples only and do not imply that they will  be found in the final tests.

Verbal Reasoning Familiarisation examples will appear here in the Spring Term 2019.
