Pt Series

Progress Test Series in independent schools

Subject attainment tests for English, maths and science.

The Progress Test Series (PT Series) helps accurately measure how your school and your students are performing in English, maths and science against the national average – and measure both in-year, and year on year progress.  

Standardised on over 100,000 children, the easy-to-use tests assess knowledge, understanding and application of the core curriculum subjects, helping you to understand current levels of attainment and identify any gaps in learning at both an individual and cohort level. 

The tests can be used at the start of the year for baselining and at the end of the year to measure and track progress. Detailed reports analyse key dimensions of learning for each subject and provide a question-by-question breakdown to help identify those students who require more challenging targets and those who may need extra support. 

This page provides information on the Progress Test Series tailored to independent schools.

Launched in 2022 – Form B offers greater flexibility and choice:

  • New set of questions for each level – Form B provides an alternative test for schools who have previously used PT Series on a regular basis
  • Measure the summer dip – Form B (Autumn) is a resit of Form A (Summer), so the same test with different questions

  • Allows you to have two in-year tests - one at the beginning of September and another in the summer. Ideal for measuring progress pupils have made during their time in your classroom
