Each year our students receive a number of assessment / exam reports which give feedback to parents and guardians.  The assessment and exam reports have been carefully designed to assist teachers in recording your students’ progress in each subject/module.  The aim of the assessment/exam reports are twofold.  Firstly, they reflect your student’s progress in each subject and secondly, they are a medium whereby teachers can give feedback to students and parents as to how best to improve in subject areas.

The grid below outlines the current Assessment and Report Schedule.
