MYP Passport Challenge


On the week beginning 7th January we ran an ‘MYP Passport Challenge’ where students were given a mini ‘passport’ gathering evidence illustrating each of the learner profile attributes. Students gave some excellent examples (both in and outside of lessons) as evidence; these ranged from assisting others with homework (demonstrating the ‘caring’ attribute) to auditioning in front of peers (demonstrating the risk-taker attribute).

We are very proud to see our Year 7 students displaying a wide range of behaviours successfully and developing a better understanding of how these attributes can help them become responsible members of society.




What does my IB MYP Assessment Grade mean?

For each subject group there will be an achievement level breakdown for each of the 4 criteria (A,B,C,D).

Achievement levels across the four criteria are added together creating a total number out of 32. Using the table below, this is converted into an MYP Grade from 1-7 with 7 being the highest.

During the course of the academic year students will be awarded an MYP Interim Grade. At the end of the year an MYP Final Grade will be awarded based on the summative assessments that have taken place during the course of the year.
