Information on current grades and target grades

For Key Stage 3 students (Years 7 and 8 for all and Year 9 for some), a number level is given followed by a letter sub level e.g.4b

The levels range from 1 to 8 (level 8 is the highest). Most of our students in Year 7 will be operating at levels 3, 4 and 5 and most of our Year 8 students will be working at levels 4, 5 and 6.

The letter sub levels are;

a = working at the top of this level

b = working in the middle of this level

c = working towards the bottom of this level

For students studying GCSE subjects a grade is given ranging from A* down to G. Grade U is used for students who will not achieve a grade for a variety of reasons. For students studying Applied Learning subjects, the following awards are given – Distinction (equivalent to a GCSE grade A), Merit (equivalent to a GCSE grade B) and a Pass (equivalent to a GCSE grade C).

For students studying Advanced Level subjects (AS or A2) a grade is given ranging from A* to E. Grade U is used for students who have not achieved a grade. Other Level 3 Applied Learning courses are graded pass, merit or distinction with A Level grade equivalences.

The numbers following each grade indicate the following:

1= producing work at this grade; therefore achievement of this grade is likely

2 = producing work mostly at this grade; therefore achievement of this grade is probable but not yet secure.

3 = producing some work at this grade; therefore achievement of this grade is possible with further progress.
