UPDATE: Banding Assessments at Magna

We have received a number of enquiries from parents and carers for online information regarding the Banding Assessments for new students who are expressing a preference to join Magna Academy.
 
The dates to note are as follows:
 
Saturday, 30 September
Saturday, 7 November
Saturday, 14 November
 
On each of these dates, there will be two sittings, beginning at:
 
09:00 am
12:00 noon
 
Each sitting will last roughly two hours and will consist of online assessments that test your child on Literacy and Numeracy.
 
There is no preparation needed for these assessments as there is no pass mark. It is important that the student understands that this is not a selection exercise. All these assessments will do is to help Magna staff to categorise students in terms of low, middle and high ability, enabling us to have a comprehensive intake on admission but also streamlining the appropriate experience for your child.
 
We will be taking phone bookings on 01202 604222 for these assessments between 9:00am and 1:00pm, Mon-Fri in week commencing 24-July 2017 - for that week only. If you have not secured a booking by 1pm on Friday, we will restart the bookings facility when the Academy re-opens in September.
 
We very much look forward to welcoming your child for assessment in the Autumn.
