At the end of each term, your parents will receive a progress report, which will inform them of your Attitude to Learning (ATL) in each curriculum subject.

Attitude to Learning is one of the most important factors that influences your outcomes in school. Research shows that students achieving a one or two in their ATL are more likely to make academic progress which is ‘on track’ or ‘above’ at KS3 or to have ‘current grades’ which are equal to or above their ‘target grades’ at GCSE.

Every student at Queen Elizabeth’s Academy is in control of his or her ATL. This means that regardless of whether or not you find learning easy or difficult, if you are getting the top grades or not, or which subjects you enjoy the most, you can choose to show that you are engaged and highly motivated in your learning. If you make the choice to have a consistently good attitude to your learning, you are giving yourself the best possible chance of making exceptional academic progress at QEA.
