Familiarisation Tests

The Familiarisation Tests at Newstead Wood School are being organised and run exclusively by the Newstead Wood Parents Association (NWPA). Therefore, any queries about Familiarisation Tests should be directed to, not to the school. We aim to reply within 2-3 days. 

Sitting practice papers at home is a very different experience to sitting selection exams invigilated under exam conditions in a school location with other children. NWPA is supporting parents who are considering applying for their daughters to enter Year 7 at Newstead Wood School and any other children that may be preparing for entry to other selective schools. 

The Familiarisation Tests are held at Newstead Wood School in Avebury Road, Orpington, BR6 9SA 

We will be hosting our next series of Familiarisation Tests in the summer term of 2024, to prepare children for the environment of the Selection Tests.
