Assessment and Reporting

Waldegrave reports the assessment of student performance and progress to parents/carers twice a year.  Our teacher assessments will be informed by a combination of classwork, tests and where relevant end of year examinations. In addition we hold Parents' Consultation Meetings for each year group where there is an opportunity for parents/carers to discuss their child's progress with teaching staff.

Measuring Progress through Key Stage 3

In Years 7-9

In KS3 we measure progress on a scale from 101 to 113. Starting points are based on a combination of KS2 SATs and cognitive ability tests. Students are expected to make one step of progress at each monitoring point (two in each year). Students are taught in mixed ability classes for all subjects and there is no limit to what they can achieve. We encourage a growth mind-set – anything is possible with enough time, hard work and determination.

Based on their final position on the progress scale, the table below gives an indication of what students may expect to achieve in GCSE and then the possible progression at KS5

Progress point at end of KS3 Typical grades at GCSE Typical progression at KS5


7 - 9



Level 3 courses such as BTEC, apprenticeship or A levels. GCSE grades may be taken into account on University applications.


5 - 8

108 - 109

4 - 7


1 - 5

Level 2 programmes such as level 2 BTEC or apprenticeships.


In Year 9 (2020-21)

In year 9 our students start on GCSE mathematics and RE courses, in these progress is measured as in KS4 – see below.  For other subjects progress is measured on the scale used for KS3.

Measuring Progress through Key Stage 4

In Years 10 and 11 we grade achievement using GCSE points (ranging 1 to 9) and use this to measure achievement against targets. Students receive regular feedback through class assessments and marked work.

Measuring Progress through Key Stage 5

In sixth form the targets for student progress and achievement are set using a system called ALPS and are based on attainment at GCSE. Students receive regular feedback through assessments and their reports compare working at grades to ALPs target grades.
