Assessment

We regularly assess students’ academic potential and progress. We place importance on accurate and thorough assessment so that students are placed in the relevant groups with appropriate challenge and support.

Each student is set individualised targets dependent on their level. Targets are set in line with our expectation that students should achieve the following minimum levels:

  • Level  5A (English and Science), Level  6B+ (Mathematics) by the end of Key Stage 3.
  • Minimum  5A*-C grades (including English and Mathematics) at the end of Key Stage 4.

Students are assessed every half term in English, Mathematics and Science and termly in all foundation subjects.
