Throughout the academic year you will receive regular updates on your son’s achievement.
For all students in Key Stage 3/4 (Years 7-11) you will receive Achievement Cards twice a year and once a year you will receive a school report, as well as having the opportunity to attend parents’ evening once a year.
At Key Stage 4 we are experiencing the introduction of new GCSEs (with our remaining few subjects starting in September 2017). Students are now assessed under a new grading system based on numbers 9-1, with 9 being the highest and 1 being the lowest.
At Key Stage 3 we have also adopted this grading system based on numbers 9-1. A table showing how these number grades map onto the old letter grades and levels can be seen here.
The curriculum maps below are intended to support parents and carers in understanding, in more detail, the topics that their sons will be studying throughout the academic year. We hope that this information will give parents and carers the opportunity to discuss learning with their son which will reinforce continued, outstanding learning and progress.

Throughout your child’s education you will be kept updated with information, advice and guidance through letters home, in our newsletters as well as through events such as Open Evenings, Parents Evenings, Options Evenings and future Pathways Days.
