Assessments

Our curriculum incorporates innovative teaching methodologies, regular assessments and consistent reporting strategies while constantly recognising and rewarding student achievement. Our students undergo regular formative and summative assessments using in-school and third-party assessment systems. We assess, track and benchmark our student attainment and progress against criteria of the curriculum which we also use to continuously improve our own education practices.
