How we report progress on our interims: 
When deciding on whether your child is making the relevant progress, our staff take into account a large variety of factors; classwork, written assessments, progress on the Accelerated Maths programme, the computerised STAR Maths test assessments, and our our Age Related Expectations (ARE) grid. Your child’s progress is monitored, throughout their time at HCCS, against their Indicative Grade Range (IGR) and whether they are following their predicted “flight path.”

Extra Support:
Every Monday, we have Monday Maths in M1. Students from Year 12 and Year 13 bring their work with them and we work through any issues that they may have with homework or revision. 

On a Thursday in M2, we have Topic Top Ups. Students from year 13 attend bespoke masterclasses on key areas that they need extra support with. These sessions focus on understanding the question and key exam technique.

In addition to attending these sessions students are encouraged to seek support from their teachers at break, lunch and in their non-contacts.

Online Resources:
Along with mymaths, mathswatch and Dr Frost, we have a bespoke student website containing everything our students will need to support them with their studies. Students will need to be logged into their hccs email to access this.
