Knowing how well you are doing in school
A new set of examinations for everybody
From September 2018 all the new courses for Key Stage 5 will be in place and the old AS courses terminate. From this point onwards A level examinations will all take place at the end of year 13 and there will not be public examinations at the end of year 12. All BTECS will no longer be coursework only and will have significant examination components.
What this means for our sixth form
For us, as a sixth form, this means we enter into a new rhythm and cycle of how we will operate in year 12 and the students in year 13 will continue to follow this.
Progression into year 13 is dependent on student performance at the end of year terminal assessments and student attendance.
Students in year 13 will continue to have data collections as they did in year 12, with a date collection in September for their predicted UCAS grades.
Data collections will inform student intervention, as well as consistent teacher feedback throughout the year. All students are encouraged to discuss their progress with their subject teachers and work towards or above their MEG grade.
PLEASE NOTE THAT IF YOUR ATTENDANCE FOR A SUBJECT DROPS BELOW 90%, ENTRY FOR THAT EXAMINATION AND/ OR PROGRESSION THROUGH TO YEAR 13 CANNOT BE GUARANTEED UNLESS THERE ARE EXTENUATING CIRCUMSTANCES.
