Assessment (including homework)

All yearsStudents will sit five assessments over the academic year. Written feedback will be given to indicate if students are on track or not based on their GCSE target grade.
 
Throughout the course verbal feedback is given to students and they are supported in lessons.
 
Students are also encouraged to review their feedback and devise their own targets for development on a regular basis.
 
Reflective study homework tasks will be set on a regular basis to encourage students to reflect on their learning and develop their skills further.
