All students are set targets. As a parent you should be able to see these in your child’s Homework Diary.  Progress is measured against targets and this is reflected in a child’s progress report.

Key Stage 3(Yrs 7-9)


Students are given a Minimum Target Grade (MTG) which is the Subject grade they would be expected to gain if they make nationally expected progress from their starting point in Yr 7 to the end of Yr 9 (KS3)  Reports reflect progress against this target which is ability based.


Key Stage 4 (Yrs 10 & 11)


Students are given a Minimum Target Grade (MTG) which is the Subject grade they would be expected to gain if they make nationally expected progress from their starting point in Yr 7 to the end of Yr 11 (KS4) .

The Higher Target Grade (HTG) is the subject grade they might achieve if they made progress similar to the top 20% of students nationally from their starting point in Yr 7 to the end of KS4


 In Reports the grade given to students is a predicted GCSE grade.


• This grade represents the grade a student is likely to get in their GCSE exam if they continue to work as they have done up to the time of the report.  It would be based on work assessments, and the teacher’s professional judgement.


• If a student is making expected progress at KS4 the grade should be close to or above the MTG.

Key Stage 5 (Yrs 12 & 13)


• Students are given a Target grade for AS and A2 subjects (provided for us by the FFT and from GCSE data) and for most Btec subjects. This grade is the most likely grade for students to achieve with GCSE results similar to theirs.


In reports the teacher projects a grade based assessments and the teacher's professional judgement.
