Students are assessed through the regular marking of books against set criteria. Such marking will include a formative comment and reward stamps if appropriate. Students will be set termly targets and also short term focused targets where appropriate. Tests will take place in class where necessary.  


Every teacher has a record of each student’s national test scores and complete a range of tests when joining the College. These scores are used to inform teaching.  Each teacher holds records of all their students and in particular of those with special needs and those who are very able. This information is readily available to teachers through the College management system and is used to focus teaching and target setting. Records of homework and tests are recorded in teachers’ planners and on our central database.


Teaching and Learning is evaluated by Heads of Department, Senior Staff and an external assessor through a constant process of monitoring. Students’ progress against targets is analysed to enable reward or intervention and support where appropriate. We expect students to revise for tests and assessments. This will give students invaluable exam experience and help us to judge progress accurately.
