Outside formal meetings, parents are welcome to make an appointment to meet with their child’s teacher at any time throughout the year. These appointments can be arranged through the School Office or by emailing the relevant teacher.

ASSESSMENT

The assessment of students takes place through a range of formative and summative tasks for each subject throughout the year. Students also undertake a range of external assessments, that allows the school to compare our students with students from UK and international cohorts. Each year students in Years 7 to 9 undertake the Progress Tests from GL Assessments in English, Mathematics and Science. Students in Year 7, 10 and 12 also complete a Cognitive Abilities Test. These external assessments give teachers a broad range of information about student achievement and ability to help them best plan for the learning needs of their classes.
