Assessment and Exams
Assessment of a student's progress in the School can take many forms and teachers generally approach this in a manner most appropriate to the subject and the student's needs. Grades are not given in classes and teachers do not use punishment and reward as motivators. A detailed report of the student's progress, in all aspects of school life, is prepared twice a year and sent to parents.
The School offers examinations for university entrance. These include the IELTS (International English Language Testing System), the Advanced Subsidiary Level (AS Level) and Advanced Level (A level) examinations for UK universities. The AS/A Level exams can generally be used for entrance to universities throughout the world. We encourage and support students so they perform to the best of their ability in examinations, while using an educational approach that helps minimise the anxiety and fears associated with exam pressure.
