Assessment and reporting

Our teachers use a variety of strategies to assess student learning.

Teachers observe students' work in class and look closely at tasks throughout the year. They also formally assess a student's achievement based on the outcomes described in the syllabus of the subject.

As a parent or carer, you’ll receive a written report twice a year. It gives you a clear picture of your child’s achievements – what they know and can do.

In Years 7 to 10, we use the common grade scale in reporting. In Year 11, we use the Preliminary grade scale.

Vocational Education and Training (VET) courses are assessed on achievement of competencies.


We provide detailed information to students about what we expect from them throughout the year and how their work will be assessed. Students have a number of formal assessments throughout their schooling.

  • Assessment Task Special Consideration Form- If illness, accident, misadventure or special circumstances prevent a student from completing a set task on or by the due date, the school must be advised immediately the situation is known. For requests which require an extension of time this form must be submitted as soon as the requirement is known but at least two days prior to the due date. For absence on the dale of a task this form must be submitted on your first day of return. This form must be completed and returned to the Head Teacher of the subject affected
