I've recently set up a VPS with a view to transferring all of my current websites from my current shared hosting platform to this VPS. But I want to make sure that this VPS would be an improvement to page load speed for the websites compared to the shared platform I'm on at the moment.

I was wondering if there was a way to test the speed of both servers and compare them?

You can test load times in the browser with YSlow from Yahoo. It also offers functionality to suggest ways you can improve page performance. Its more about the web/front end stuff (HTML, Javascript, CSS) than serverside, but it will certainly help you compare load times.
