In the Sixth Form we use a range of regular and personalised communications to support progress.
Regular feedback is provided to students from teachers through assessments and marking. This is available on work and in exercise books and is often the best source for specific actions on what to do next to improve.
Students should review and act on feedback routinely.
Topic and Assessment Plans
Students have also been provided with a plan of topics and assessment for the year. This will help guide them through the year and enable effective revision and tracking of performance in each topic.
Homeworks, assessments and marks are also available in our online tracking system Go4Schools. To access Go4Schools we will need to have an accurate record of the parents Email address. To confirm the contact details we have for you please contact Miss Sarah Byham, firstname.lastname@example.org.
Students and parents are able to view homeworks and assessments in Go4Schools

In addition to mocks in November for Y13, January and June external examination windows for vocational courses, we have formal end of Year 12 Completion Exams. These Completion Exams will be a crucial milestone to determine students progression into Year 13. Further information and timetables for exams is shared before each sequence.
