Progress Reports

We believe effective communication about progress is crucial to our team ethos,
so at the end of each half term parents and carers will receive a paper copy of their child’s progress report.

Exams and Grading

The way exams are sat and graded changed in 2017 with a new scale that uses the numbers 9-1 to identify levels of performance (with 9 being the top level).
These exams are linear GCSEs, with assessment to be taken at the end of the course in June. There are no re-sit opportunities for GCSE exams.
Students are assessed by external exam only, except in subjects such as Art and Design which include a coursework element.
Examinations are split into Foundation and Higher tiers for Modern Foreign Languages, Science and Mathematics.
