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.

Assessment handbooks 2023 to 2024

The 2023-2024 Year 12 assessment handbook is for students sitting the 2024 HSC examinations. It contains the school's Stage 6 assessment policy, illness/misadventure processes and assessment schedules for each course. Students and their parents/carers are strongly encouraged to familiarise themselves with this handbook.

Year 7 to 11 assessment handbooks contain the school's assessment policy, illness/misadventure processes and assessment schedules for mandatory courses and elective courses.

Our school's assessment calendar for all year groups can be found here, and it's also on the Sentral Student Portal.


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.

Illness and misadventure


Illness and misadventure applications and processes can be found in each year group's assessment handbook.
