Assessment and reporting

A Levels and BTECs are graded differently to GCSEs. While A Levels are graded A*-E, BTECs are awarded with Pass, Merit or Distinction.

All students are set Target Grades at the beginning of their courses. They are generated based upon their prior performance at GCSE and a national formula is applied. Please note these are aspirational and not a ceiling to achievement. As such, all students are prepared for all material up to A* standard.

Parents and guardians will receive five progress reports over the course of the two year programmes of study. Two of which will be based on internal formal examinations: the Year 12 Exams and the Year 13 Mock Exams.
