Year 9 Assessment Descriptors

In Year 9, students’ achievement is reported twice per year (at the mid-point and end-point of the academic year). We report the results of these assessments on a 7-point scale: grade 1, grade 2, grade 3, grade 4, grade 5, grade 6 and grade 6+. A grade 6+ is the highest grade on this 7-point scale. In Key Stage 4, students will move to a 9-point grading system where a grade 9 is the highest achievement in a GCSE qualification.
