Transition from primary

We know that quickly securing a sound transition into Key Stage 3 is vital in ensuring students go on to achieve their potential at GCSE, and beyond.
How can we help
  • Establish a baseline, pinpoint those students who need further stretch and understand achievement across key groups. Reports also include an indication of performance at KS2 - Cognitive Abilities Test (CAT4)
  • Establish current attainment in maths, English and science - Progress Test Series (PT Series)
  • Establish and track levels of reading - New Group Reading Test (NGRT)
  • Identify any barriers to learning through understanding students’ attitudes to learning - Pupil Attitudes to Self and School (PASS)
  • Compare CAT4 data and data from our attainment tests using our unique combination report to identify disparities between ability and attainment - CAT 4, New Group Reading Test (NGRT), Progress Test in English and in Maths
By using CAT4 for all Year 7 and new students, we are able to ensure that staff have relevant data at their fingertips when they need it most.
