Parents can expect to receive information on progress in all subjects in two main ways:
Formal reports, which include Achievement grades specific to the education phase. In the Foundation IGCSE program, Grades 7 & 8 students’ progress in each subject is reported according to assessment criteria and graded A* to G. In the IGCSE program, Grades 9 & 10 students’ progress in each subject is reported according to the grades awarded by the examination board. That is, A* to G for CIE courses and 1 to 9 for AQA and EdExcel courses. In the IB program, Grades 11 & 12 students’ progress in each subject is reported on a 1-7 scale. Feedback on a student’s approaches to learning is also recorded on the report card.
Approaches to Learning
Our staff has worked together to identify the characteristics of student learning approaches that align with the school’s, and the IB’s, pedagogy and approach to learning. The intention is to raise the expectations of our students by making explicit references to positive approaches, such as taking the initiative and actively participating in lessons.
