Exams, Assessment & Reporting

Introduction

KS3 is an extremely important time in the development of children both academically and pastorally. There are many changes for students and parents alike: the process of transition from primary school, their growth as socially responsible young people, and the laying of foundations for academic success at KS4 to name but a few.

At KS3, students will receive 3 progress reports per year, one per term. These reports contain information regarding academic progress, attitude to learning, concerns, and an overall target for your child’s subjects, based on prior attainment.

They will also sit formal exams in English, Maths and Science in January and in English, Maths, Science, Humanities and Languages in May/June. These scores are reported formally, along with the average (median) score and top 10% score in the year group, for each subject.

Links have been provided with a sample report, exam score report and a PowerPoint explaining the new grading and reporting system.
