Assessment at Bramhall High School

Each subject area has outlined what a child needs to be able to do or know in that subject area to achieve each grade on our 9-1 scale. Please use these assessment grids to support your child achieving the best grade they can. These should be used in conjunction with your child’s target grade, work in their book and tracking report when you are looking at how well your child is doing academically.

We have moved to a 9-1 measure to support children as they approach the new grading system at GCSE which is also based on a 9-1 grade. At GCSE the same number of children nationally will achieve a grade 4 as used to achieve a grade C or better BUT the government has set a grade 5 as the new standard for a “good” pass. The same number of children nationally will achieve a grade 7+ as used to achieve a grade A or better.
