Assessment

Assessment is through weekly individual tutorials and formal assessments at a number of points in the year. Students are given work schedules to help assist the planning of their independent work. Students are expected to keep up with the schedules to enable them to gain the highest grades. The school provides the basic equipment and materials for the students to succeed. Students are required to provide A1 mount boards and any additional materials above and beyond the basic requirements they wish to purchase.

Please note that the A Level work is assessed holistically across each unit
