Key Stage 5 Achievement Bands

Key Stage Five

In the Sixth Form, students will also be set aspirational targets in the form of achievement bands.  The targets will be set using the GCSE grades students attained at the end of Key Stage Four with the higher grade in the band challenging A Level and VTQ students to achieve grades that fall in line with how students perform in the top 25% of post-16 providers nationally.

Students sit termly pre-public examinations (PPEs) in all subjects and the results of these examinations are reported to parents.  As with Key Stages Three and Four, parents will receive two Screening and Progress Reports (SPRs) for their child over the course of the year.

The achievement bands and the indicators of progress against the bands are detailed in the Academic / Achievement and Assessment section of the website.
