Method of assessment: APP and tests. 

We begin the year with a focus on London and the HEROIC project. This involves discovering London and Fulham through the use of maps and by getting to know Journey Planner, in order that you can find your way around London, from where you live.
Then after half term, through the use of testing and using prior data, we place students into classes that are best suited to their ability level in order that we can adequately challenge and excite them every lesson.
