Our Keystage 3 “Pursuit of Excellence” measure ensures a smooth transition for pupils who started Keystage 3 this year and for pupils who will be making the transition to Keystage 4 next academic year. It also provides appropriate challenge and continues to ensure an accurate and effective measure of your child’s progress. The style of summative assessment in Keystage 3 also reflects this challenge.
To prepare all of our pupils for the style and challenge of assessment in Keystage 4, exam style assessments now take place in Keystage 3. These exams take place for years 7, 8 and 9, in the majority of subjects; scheduled in the autumn and summer terms. This summer’s exams will commence 25th June and will take place until 6th July.
