How will students be assessed?
Students are assessed at Key Stage 3 and 4, normally at the ages of 14
These assessments will involve a combination of continuous assessments
by teachers, together with Standard Assessment Tasks.
At the end of Key Stage 4, assessment will be in the form of GCSE
The General Certificate of Secondary Education (GCSE) will form the
final part of the Key Stage 4 assessment.
In some subjects students will sit the papers best suited to their level
In other subjects, students sit common papers. The school’s assessment
of students’ coursework during the two years of the course forms a component
of the final grade in most subjects.
Examination Entry Policy
The School’s policy is, wherever possible, to enter all Year ll
students for GCSE examinations in every subject they study.
This can allow students to enter for up to nine subjects. Where
appropriate other qualifications are sometimes offered.
