Hello All
Just wondered if anyone knows the criteria for the accelerated group in year 8.Son doing ok so far but have no idea how they decide.
Thank you in advance.

Not completely sure - levels received in assessments and general attitude to work, although there were a few surprises in my son's year.

The pace of work is a bit quicker for Maths in particular and they dont get hardly any homework.

They are given the choice to be in 8A although I don't think anyone turned it down!! I am not sure it is a big deal as they get mixed up again for Year 10/11 due to option choices. Also they have Maths sets in Year 9 anyway.

Thanks for that.We received a letter explaining that they have changed the structure for next sept.Not an accelerated group anymore and more room for movement[if that makes sense].Can't believe my son has nearly completed a year at BIG school!Think he will be happy not to be the youngest in Sept.He will have been 12 for 8 days when they go back.
