Secondary 1

The Secondary 1 Programme is a framework for increasing educational success for students in years 7 to 9.

This programme builds on the primary stage and develops student’s knowledge, skills and confidence in various different subjects across the curriculum. The curriculum is designed to help parents and teachers track the student’s process through the lower secondary phase.

Throughout the year, assessments will be conducted by the teacher in an informal but productive way. Giving teachers valuable information when tracking student’s progress and potential areas of weakness, furthermore at the end of years 7 and 8 students take the progression tests in English, Mathematics and Science. Checkpoint testing will be conducted at year 9 in preparation for the next level of study.

These are designed to allow teachers to follow the progress of their students over time and analyse performance within their classes and against an external benchmark.
