Assessment Arrangements

In response to changes to GCSEs and the removal of National Curriculum levels, we have changed the way we assess and report to parents about students' progress and achievement in school. We are confident these new procedures will allow teachers to ensure students make the progress of which they are capable.

Each subject area has developed a flight path which can be used to assess students’ progress in key stage 3 and key stage 4 against a GCSE target 9-1. Students will be measured against the following terms Achieved Standard (AS), Working Towards the standard (WT) and Exceeding the standard (EX). In each of the links below you will find the flight paths for each of the subject areas.

A Caring Christian Environment

"Our two daughters have had the best start in life thanks to the caring, enthusiastic and hardworking staff of Archbishop Blanch School. Choosing the right secondary school for one's children is such a difficult task, but we could feel the special ethos of ABS on our first visit. You inspire your pupils to achieve the academic heights of which they are capable in a happy, safe and vibrant environment."
Archbishop Blanch Parent.
