Assessment plays a fundamental role in learning. It helps students and teachers identify what has been learned, the skills that have been mastered and what needs to improve. Most importantly, it guides and supports students through the next steps of their learning. High-quality assessment can have a very positive impact on students learning and progress.

We set aspirational targets for students in line with the top 20% of schools nationally. We use Fischer Family Trust to produce key estimates of student performance across a range of subjects.

If smart growth is about knowledge and innovation, investment in literacy skills is a prerequisite for achieving such growth… Our world is dominated by the written word, both online and in print. This means we can only contribute and participate actively if we can read and write sufficiently well.

But, each year, hundreds of thousands of children start their secondary school two years behind in reading; some leave even further behind their peers... Literacy is about people’s ability to function in society as private individuals, active citizens, employees or parents... Literacy is about people’s self-esteem, their interaction with others, their health and employability. Ultimately, literacy is about whether a society is fit for the future.
