Each Key Stage 3 topic lasts approximately six weeks and ends with an assessment. The purpose of this is to monitor pupils’ progress and to ensure that they are on track to meet their target grade. The assessments vary in style but always reflect GCSE styles.
This diversity should ensure that all pupils achieve their potential. Assessment is, however, an ongoing process and pupils’ classwork will be monitored and marked by their teacher twice termly. Pupils will record their assignment levels on the record sheet on the inside front cover of their exercise books. They are also encouraged to make notes on how they could improve their work in future.
- Unit 1 Living in the physical environment (1 hr 30 exam)

The Eco Group is a means of allowing pupils to become involved in ECO issues in our local community. Each form has a representative who attends the regular lunchtime sessions where discussions take place on what can be achieved to make the school more ECO friendly. Activities are then planned and carried out.
