We are delighted to welcome Alastair Montgomery as a permanent member of the team here at The English Education. Since Alastair MontgomeryApril 2020, Alastair has been working closely alongside Jimmy Beale, Founder of The English Education, and together they have designed the APT (Academic Profiling Test) and have now secured a formal association.

Alastair says, “I am so pleased to cement my relationship with the team at The English Education and Constellation Group. I am really excited about the opportunities ahead of us as we build on the initial success of the APT – Jimmy and I have developed something that we know will be of great use to a range of markets in schools, educational consultancies, tutor companies and, importantly, directly to parents.”

Alastair was responsible for launching UKiset in 2014 and worked closely with assessment companies, Cambridge Assessment and the Centre for Evaluation and Monitoring (CEM) in developing entrance testing for independent schools. As well as designing and leading on The English Education’s unique Academic Profiling Test, he is managing director of INTAC, an international network of test centres providing professional examination services for a range of assessments. Previously, Alastair worked in specialist learning centres for cognitive processing and SEND assessments, and as an assistant housemaster in a UK boarding school.

Jimmy Beale says, “Having originally asked Alastair to design an assessment for The English Education’s clients, he developed the brief and has created a platform which provides a comprehensive assessment of a student’s academic skills, using the highest quality teacher-written test questions and adaptive technology. The APT provides standard age scores comparing performance against their peers and providing insight on specific skills to work on, as well as gauging future academic potential by looking at core skills in English, maths, verbal reasoning and non-verbal processing. Alastair comes to us with a wealth of knowledge and expertise and is highly respected in the sector and the team here is so pleased to be working alongside him. ”
