*Please note after the initial CAT4 is taken at the beginning of your daughter’s time in Durham School for Girls, a CAT4 will only be re-done every 3 years.

In every year group there are 3 times in the year where teachers will invite parents to ‘meet the teacher’ and discuss your daughter’s progression against the National Curriculum Standards and the Ministry of Education, Qatar.

Alongside a discussion regarding your daughter’s progression and attitude towards learning there will be a written report. All parents have made a commitment to their daughter’s education, therefore, meeting the teacher events are compulsory to receive your daughter’s report for that term.

CAT4 Tests (September) and Progress Tests (Summer Term) produce a separate parent report which will be sent home via PDF when they are made available after your daughter has sat her test.

Every 3 years, the girls will do a PASS test. This measures attitude, self-esteem, and is a self-evaluation. All this evidence helps us to really challenge or support your daughter to be the best that she can be.
