As you may already be aware, the way we assess our students is changing. You can view the Education Department’s circular on this topic by clicking on the following link: Curriculum update
From September 2016 at JCG, as in other island secondary schools, we will be using the new GCSE number grade scale of 1-9 to assess our students.
At Key Stage 3 we will also be using ‘fine grading’, for example, 3+ /3 / 3-, and periodic reports will reflect this. At Key Stage 4 we will not be using fine grading as students will be working towards an externally examined GCSE grade which will not be fine graded.
