Tate Senior School - Grades 7-9
Grade 7 to Grade 9 is the phase of learning where independence, work ethic and time management becomes the central focus. The students are set project based tasks to learn and practice these skills. They also begin to work towards their subject choices for their final three years of schooling. In the Senior Phase, the students start to take formal assessments in each subject but the focus remains on continuous assessment as the breakdown is 30% formal assessment, i.e. tests and examinations, and 70% continuous assessment weight. This is to expose them to the conditions of a formal exam that is required for the International GCSE, AS and GED Programmes.
