The King's School provides parents with information to ensure they stay up to date with their child’s progress at all times. Reports are compiled regularly for all students, and we offer numerous opportunities for parents to meet with staff throughout the year. Students are set aspirational targets at the beginning of Year 7 based on KS2 prior attainment. Assessments and attitude to learning are reported 3 times a year; in winter, spring and summer. The final end-of-year assessment is based on what students have learnt from the start of the year.
