Courses differ year to year depending on the most appropriate forms of assessment as well as the ability of the pupil and their individual needs. For example, some courses are available for assessment a regular intervals throughout the year while others are allotted a single exam date after two years. More than qualifications however, we aim to motivate, challenge and engage pupils to use their skills and knowledge to learn as independently as possible as well as organising their time.
