How will students be assessed?


Students are assessed at Key Stage 3 and 4, normally at the ages of 14 and 16.


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 examination.



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 of attainment. 

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.
