Reporting and Progress

The school has a ‘test week’ each term and end of term examinations called ‘trials.’ The results of these appear on each boy’s report which is available to his parents. The report also features a detailed look at each boy’s co-curricular interests and achievements. Full reports are provided each term. At the termly PTM’s parents receive a detailed progress on their son’s individual subject choices and also his wider emotional and physical development. Housemasters write end of term letters and the school’s intranet is updated several times a week with news and updates of a group and individual nature to all parents. There is also an academic system of warning boys about under performance as well as achievement and effort prizes given through the year and culminating at the school’s annual Prize Giving. Tutors meet the boys several times a week in their very small tutor group, where academic progress and individual and group advice, study skills, mentoring and support are given. Parents also are able to email their son’s individual subject teacher as well as their son’s tutor and Housemaster for advice and support. There is a clear communication structure laid out in the termly calendar which shows who parents should contact about what aspect of their son’s life.
