What teachers are saying...

  • NTS Assessments provide us with useful attainment, progress and comparison data to use as part of our assessment process and the average strand information generated helps to inform future teaching. What’s even better is that we’re helping the children to become familiar with the National Test format.
    Sue Stamp, Headteacher & Assessment Co-ordinator
    Long Crendon School
  • (W)e highly recommend NTS Assessments and Shine Interventions as a tool for taking away the ‘guesswork’ out of assessment and for giving us a clear picture of attainment in reading and maths.
    Deputy CEO

  • NTS Assessments give us robust, detailed diagnostics to complement teacher judgement... They are easy to use and effectively prepare children for their SATs.
