Grades used in school to measure progress

When we assess students and report their progress to parents, we use the new number grade system (9-1) for all subjects in Years 11, 10, 9, 8 and 7.

The only exception to this will be for a small number of ‘Cambridge National’ subjects.

Converting between letter grades (A*-G) and number grades (9-1)

Please note that in the old letter grade system (A*-G), a grade C was considered to be a pass.

In the new number grade system (9-1), a grade 4 is considered to be a ‘standard’ pass (equivalent to a grade C)

A grade 5 is considered to be a ‘strong’ pass (equivalent to a high C/low B)

 

Fine Grades

To help us monitor progress more closely within the school, we use a Fine Grades system where each grade is broken down into 3 sub levels.

For example…

6a - Student is secure at this grade and with intervention may move up to the next grade.

6b - Student is secure in this grade

6c - Student is not secure at this grade and without intervention may slip to the grade below.

This also applies similarly to other grades 8a, 8b, 8c etc
