St John's School Entry assessment

St John's School Entry Assessment - January 2021

St John's entry assessment will be online and will use inbuilt invigilation software provided by Mettl, which includes artificial intelligence, to ensure the process is as fair as possible. The invigilators are all St John's School staff. The software will take a photograph of the child for authorisation purposes before the assessment starts. No personal data is uploaded to the system other than the child's first name.
