How and when is my child assessed?

The Geography department assess pupils in Key Stage 3 twice every half-term following the Lancashire Assessment model. Look out for the green assessment sheets in students’ exercise books. Over the course of an academic year we assess a wide range of tasks and skills culminating in an end-of-year examination. Throughout Key Stage 3 we develop and nurture the geographical skills students will need to apply in Key Stage 4.
