GSO Test

Reasoning and Thinking (RATS)

Reasoning and Thinking Skills Are taught, as a timetabled subject, to all pupils from Year 4 upwards.

In the Junior forms there are opportunities to think laterally and to develop verbal and non-verbal thinking skills. In Years 7 and 8 pupils will follow the OCR Critical Thinking Skills syllabus which will give them the opportunity to take a formal exam which is currently equivalent to a short course GCSE. More details of the course and philosophy behind this subject are available from the Deputy Head (Studies). The topics covered are also very useful preparation for senior school pre-tests.
