Testing and assessment

 

Junior School

Junior School students are issued with an assessment schedule at the beginning of each semester.  This schedule outlines all assessment that students must complete including assignments and exams.  The schedule will indicate the week of the term that the assessment is due or the week of the term that the exam will be given.  Junior students will complete exams in class time and must be present on the day of the exam.

 

Senior School

Senior School students are also issued with an assessment schedule at the beginning of each semester.  Students are themselves responsible for ensuring that they are aware of the assessment requirements for each of their subjects; this includes checking the assessment schedule for when assignments are given and are due, and when in the semester they will be required to sit an exam for one of their subjects.  Some subjects will require that students sit exams in the end of term block exam session.  Dates for block exam sessions are in the school calendar.
