How do you assess pupils in the Senior School

In addition to in-class assessment pupils undertake baseline testing at key points. The results from these are shared internally and with parents and assist teachers in understanding the individual strengths, weaknesses and capabilities of pupils.

MidYIS (Year 7 and new pupils in Years 8 and 9)

MidYIS is a computer adaptive assessment for pupils aged 11 to 14 that provides information to help us identify pupils' strengths and weaknesses.

Yellis (Year 10)

Yellis is an adaptive baseline assessment for pupils aged 14 to 16. It helps to identify where they need support as they prepare for their GCSEs. Yellis also provides value-added information to help measure the progress a pupil is making at school. 

Alis (Year 12)

Alis is an adaptive baseline assessment for students aged 16 to 18 that provides information to help identify a pupil's strengths and weaknesses, see how they are likely to perform at A Level and track their progress. The data collected assists in providing support, motivation and realistic target setting.
