    roughly what levels are pupils in a good prep school in Y5? Planning an interview lesson and want to pitch it right!

    Many independent schools don't concern themselves with levels, but in general terms level 3 would be the absolute minimum in a good school, in my experience. However, you would do well to expect the majority of a class to be on level 1 or 2.

    Eh? Level 1 and 2 are below level 3.

    If it's a selective prep, expect them to be a year ahead of nat. average. So Level 4, broadly speaking.

    I have a Yr 5 form, we range from 1st percentile to 100th percentile on the VR/NVR papers,however 95% are higher than 50th centile and probably two thirds above 75th centile.

    Level wise from Level 1/P-scales for the 1st centile child up to Level 6 (talking Maths here) for the top 5 or 6 in the year group. Most average kids in the year group would be a secure Level 4 already
