The level of attainment at the Alice Smith School is high and we
can only offer places to students who are able to adequately access the
curriculum and whose needs we feel we can effectively meet. Assessments are
used to determine whether the Alice Smith School is suitable for your child, so
we can be sure that he/she will cope and settle happily with us.
The Alice Smith School will also contact your child's current
school directly for an academic and personal reference.
The results of the assessment and the reference from the current
school will be reviewed by a member of the Senior Leadership Team at the
relevant campus and you will be informed of the outcome within one week of
completion of the assessment and receipt of the reference.
Assessments are valid for twelve months from date of completion.
Follow up assessments may be required if a place is not taken up within that
The outcome of the assessment will be one of the following:
- If a place is available,

If your child has any previously identified special educational
needs, we would request that you discuss this with the school before your child
takes the assessment tests as we will need to ensure that
we can effectively meet their needs with the support and provision we have
available. Each student is considered case by case.
Whilst we have Learning Support teachers who offer additional
assistance in specific areas of the curriculum or learning, we cannot cater for
students who require significant support to access our curriculum. The Alice
Smith School offers a limited programme to teach students for whom English is
an additional language. Entrance onto this language programme will also be
considered on a case by case basis.
