Rapid Review Reports are constructed for parents showing your academic progress grades. In addition teachers report back on your effort. During November there will be a Parents Evening. You and your parents will be invited to attend individual meetings with your subject teachers to discuss your progress.
Major reports are issued in March. This is reviewed during a meeting with your Tutor. Each pupil is seen individually and progress is discussed as well as academic targets set for the year ahead.
During the PHSE lessons you will receive guidance on how you may best construct a revision timetable ready for the end of year exams.
