Students are grouped by tutor group from the outset of year 7; following a common transition programme of study for the first 4 weeks, the students will be assessed and set. These sets are fluid and changes take place at any time throughout both key stages 3 and 4.  During Key Stage 3 students follow an ambitious medium-term plan covering the key areas of number; algebra; shape, space and measure and data handling and probability.  The exact nature of the material covered is very dependent on the individual student; however, we aim for most students to begin GCSE work in year 7. 

Assessment is ongoing by members of staff using a range of measures and reported grades aim to take a holistic view of the student
