Posted with permission from the moderators and in support of the Newstead Wood Parents' Association:

The Newstead Wood Parents’ Association will be offering familiarisation tests for prospective students currently in Year 5 on Saturday 16th May and is also planning to offer them on Saturday 11th July 2020. Booking will open for the 16th May tests on Sunday 1st March 2020 at 10am.

The Familiarisation Tests are designed for children in Year 5 who will be sitting secondary school selection tests in the next school year. The Familiarisation Tests are not appropriate for children who are not in Year 5.

The Familiarisation Tests are held at Newstead Wood School in the classrooms set up imitating the real selection test atmosphere.

There will be 2 sessions offered on Saturday 16th May at 11am and 2pm and further sessions on 11th July. The NWPA have a limited number of free places available to those who would be unable to afford these Familiarisation Tests. Cost of the Familiarisation Tests is £65. If your child gets free school meals or their school receives pupil premium funding for your child you can apply for a free session of NWPA Familiarisation Test. These places are funded by the NWPA and are limited in number.

For more details please visit https://www.newsteadwoodpa.org.uk/ and click on 'tests' on the left to find out more. Please do not pm me about the tests as I am only the messenger, please contact the NWPA if you have further questions.

Thank you!

The latest update from the NWPA:

Dear parents / carers,
Thank you for your interest in our NWPA Familiarisation test 2020 and for buying a ticket for the 16th May session. We monitor the ongoing coronavirus situation very closely and will adopt the government recommendations for educational settings. We understand how important this is in the preparation of your children for secondary school selection tests.
Currently, the organisation of our May session is at risk and we are considering two options: postponing the session to 11th July or cancelling. We will make a decision over next few weeks and will inform you promptly. In case of cancellation of the event, or if you cannot attend the alternative date, we will refund the full price of the ticket. Thank you for your understanding and we will be in touch with further information.
