Monitoring Progress

Academic progress is monitored through the collection of current grades throughout the year. The current grade is based upon a range of assessments conducted up to that point, including formal assessments, class work and homework.  

Students will also be given an attitude to learning grade. The attitude to learning grade is a four point scale, with 2 being the expectation of all students. Students working beyond expectations will be given a 1, with those below expectations given a 3 or 4. 

The Sixth Form team track these grades carefully after each data point and work with Subject Divisions to highlight a range of intervention strategies and offer additional support to students where needed. The support needed varies for each student; examples could be helping the student to develop their study habits (e.g. managing time and workload) or helping students to access subject specific support.
