Level quiz

Our level quiz will give an indication of the Reading Schools accreditation level we think your school should be aiming for.

The result of this quiz is a recommendation and you can make an application for any level you choose – Core, Silver or Gold. You can also apply for a higher level of accreditation in the future. For example, you may decide to aim for Core level now and work towards Silver and Gold in the future.
