Assessment falls into three broad categories:
• Day-to-day formative assessment (this could include end of topic tasks or tests)
• Medium-term summative assessment (for instance formal end of year assessments sat in either the classroom or an examination hall)
• Final (end of course) formal summative assessment (for instance BTEC and GCSE external exams)
The purpose of assessment varies depending on the context. We give very careful consideration to developing high quality assessment design and how we share the results of it. Please find below a timetable of our more formal assessments. Individual subject assessments are detailed in their curriculum plans.
