Year 11 had their results today. This is the first time they have taken both papers to know what their overall achievement in all of these areas is. In lessons they have reflected on these papers and completed a visual representation of their progress. This allows students to see immediately where their areas for development are across the 5 questions on each paper. All students have been given individualised targets on 2 reading question and the writing questions on both papers.
Moving on, students know exactly what they need to do to improve their skills. This will in turn, improve their grades. Students have identified their next steps and now need to take ownership of these and start to improve those skills.
And the December issue of our student-run magazine Sapere Aude is here!
