Assessment

With the demise of National Curriculum levels we took the decision in 2014 to assess all students from Year 7 onwards using GCSE grades.  These are reported to parents at least three times an academic year along with an Attitude to Learning level.  All subjects have worked hard to demystify the grading process by constructing 'Can-Do Attainment Ladders' which set out what a students needs to do in order to be assessed as working at a certain grade.

Year 11 Reports Letter 2016

When reporting grades, all subjects will divide each grade in to +, = or - where:

+ completing all criteria consistently
= completing most criteria most of the time
- completing some criteria most of the time
