The children at Gidea Park College complete WRAT testing in the Pre-Prep for Reading and Spelling, while the children in Prep complete the Suffolk and NFER Reading and Spelling Tests. In May from Reception to Form 6 sit NFER papers in English, Maths and Science, so the school can track the progress of the school, each cohort and each individual pupil year on year. The results are consistently above the national average across the curriculum.


At Gidea Park College we are always so proud of our pupils as they strive to reach their potential, each cohort gaining results in standardised tests which are well above the national average. We are always so delighted when they achieve their first choice of senior school, many of them to prestigious independent schools or Grammar schools, and they leave us full of confidence ready to move onto the next exciting stage of their school lives. We have sent children to many prestigious schools, including City of London, North London Collegiate, St Paul’s Girls’ School, Brentwood School and Bancroft’s School.

All my teachers have supported me throughout my journey at Gidea Park College.
