ICAS provides an opportunity for students to gain a measure of their own achievement in an external examination situation. This year, ICAS is changing to an online assessment. All participants receive a certificate and results data.

No formal teaching is provided for the sitting of these exams and it is up to the student to access the ICAS website if they wish to practice with past papers. ICAS exam marks do contribute to mark summaries for top academic awards, therefore it is in the students’ best interests to sit these examinations.

If your child wants to participate in any of the exams please complete the form below and return it with the correct entry fee to the school office no later than Friday 5 July.

#Please note: ICAS Writing and ICAS Spelling fall on the week of AIMS Games this year. If your child is attending AIMS, they will NOT be able to complete the Writing and Spelling ICAS assessments. As this is an International, external competition, we are unable to move the dates for this assessment.
