Introduction | Assessment | Setting & Grouping


We try to set our students on ability in science.

There are two windows throughout the year where we re-look at our setting and move students as appropriate.

These windows are before Christmas and before Easter – that way we have a whole terms worth of work to base our judgements on.

Year 7

Year 7 is taught in year halves and there are three sets in each year half.

Year 8

Year 8 is taught as the whole year group together, the groups are linked to the pupils Maths level as well.

There are 6 sets within the year group.

Year 9

Year 9 is taught as the whole year group together, the groups are linked to the pupils Maths level as well.

There are 7 sets within the year group.
