Key Stage 3
As well as the formal assessments taking place during the year each subject will also assess students through regular, department-wide summative assessments (roughly one substantial assessment every 24 lessons or so – in exam conditions) These will take place in years 7, 8 and 9.
Students will take tests in English, Maths and Science in January in Year 7, 8 and 9. These will be taken in formal exam conditions and will assess what students have learnt so far at Lymm. Results will be reported as a percentage with comparison to the average (median) and top ten percentile score.
End of year exams will take place in May/June. Students will take tests in English, Maths and Science in the Main Hall and in all other subjects in-class. Results will be reported as a percentage for English Baccalaureate subjects: English, Maths, Science, History, Geography, French, German/Spanish and also for RS. Comparison to the average is also given, as is the top ten percentage mark for these subjects. Students’ marks in their other non-English Baccalaureate subjects are used to inform their progress report emerging grades.
