The assessment is approximately 60 minutes in duration and consists of the following:

Agility: Candidates begin by lying face down on the floor with arms spread. On a signal they rise and sprint a multi directional course in as quick a time as possible.

Balance: Candidates undergo the Stork test which tests both balance and balance endurance.

Hand-eye co-ordination: Candidates throw a small rubber ball against a wall and catch it with alternate hands.

Leg power: Candidates are asked to make a two footed vertical jump from a standing start; the height of the jump is measured.

Speed: Candidates are timed to see how quickly they cover a 30 metre distance.

Stamina: Candidates complete a short cardio vascular endurance test. We use the 12 minute cooper run at Year 7 and the Bleep Test for the Sixth Form
