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.

If you are a student in Years 7-12 and are unable to attend an assessment or hand in a task on time you will need to fill in a Student Appeal and Misadventure/Illness Form and submit it to the faculty Head Teacher with your supporting documents.  The correct procedure for submitting a misadventure/illness appeal should be followed using this flowchart.
