When pupils start at Purbrook Park they are allocated GCSE targets for all their subjects based on their Key Stage 2 results. Teachers use this data to plan challenging and engaging lesson ensuring all pupils secure the best levels of progress. Timely and regular assessment across Key Stage 3 ensures effective monitoring and tracking of progress.
