At the Cathedral School, we strive, day in and day out, to provide the scaffolding for achievement in any and all fields. We recognise that all young people have a unique set of skills and enable all pupils to fulfil their potential. It is possible for excellence to become a habit and this starts from day one.
At the Cathedral School, we foster a climate of care for one other, focusing on kindness, thoughtfulness and respect. We learn to listen to and understand the beliefs and values of one another. We help every child to understand that they hold their own destiny in their hands, to understand the value of hard work and to learn to love their neighbour. All of us are equally important members of the school community, valuable, distinct and unique.
The school uses the CEM Select entrance exam to assess admissions. CEM Select includes particular questions types, covering Verbal Reasoning, Non-Verbal Reasoning and Mathematics, often paired with a CEM English paper. It is particularly important to practise the Verbal and Non-Verbal Reasoning modules, as the precise type of question varies across different exam boards.

What questions can I expect?
CEM Select assesses Verbal Reasoning, Non-Verbal Reasoning and Mathematics. However, many schools choose to partner CEM Select with an English assessment. Every Ready Steady Pass preparation exam includes a complimentary, complete English assessment as standard.
CEM Select tests are largely multiple choice, but also include fill-in-the-blanks and drag and drop question types. Which are included in all Ready Steady Pass preparation tests.
