ISEB works in partnership with many leading independent schools globally and is a patron organisation of IAPS, GSA and HMC, providing assessments and qualifications used by schools to support the admissions journey from prep to senior school.
Perhaps best known for the Common Entrance (CE) and Common Academic Scholarship (CASE) exams introduced in 1903, ISEB also administers the Common Pre-Tests, having recently transformed the product in partnership with CENTURY Tech. Alongside this suite of admissions tests sits the ISEB Project Qualification (iPQ), an innovative scheme of learning that champions self-directed learning, critical thinking and creativity.
Building on feedback from parents whose children took the ISEB Pre-Tests in the 2022-23 testing session, ISEB has worked in collaboration with CENTURY and Bond, Oxford University Press, to endorse Bond Online Premium Plus. As the only ISEB-endorsed test practice platform for the ISEB Pre-Tests, Bond Online Premium Plus supports pupils to engage in meaningful and appropriate revision, complementing their existing learning from prep and junior schools.
ISEB is also working in partnership with Dr Kathy Weston of Tooled Up Education to produce a range of parental wellness packs designed to support and empower families to navigate their admissions journey.
Looking ahead to the celebration of 120 years of CE this Autumn, and the growth of the innovative and dynamic ISEB Pre-Tests and iPQ, ISEB continues to draw strength from its history and experience, pairing innovation with heritage to provide assessments, qualifications and resources that challenge and encourage pupils to be the best they can be.
