At the end of each unit of study, students will undertake an assessment to check their progress and at each half term, pupils will be assessed in the key skill areas of listening, speaking, reading and writing. These assessments will follow the format of the current GCSE papers and test skills such as translation, comprehension and application of grammatical structures.

Students study the following themes on which assessments are based;
