Key Stage 3

During years 7 and 8, we follow a differentiated scheme of work which covers all areas of the maths curriculum and focusses on preparing the pupils to have all the necessary basic skills to start the GCSE. 

 

Key Stage 4

We start the GCSE syllabus in year 9 and follow a 3 year scheme of work.  The work for GCSE is supported by the use of new Pearson’s textbooks and is separated in to Higher and Foundation courses.

All exams in Maths take place in June of year 11 and we are currently working towards the Edexcel GCSE for all year groups.  From the first exams in 2017, Maths GCSEs will be graded using the new 1-9 grading system.


Enrichment

Alongside the usual curriculum, the Maths Department also runs after school enrichment classes for selected high achieving pupils in a Further Maths GCSE course and regularly enter pupils for UK Maths Challenge competitions and team challenges.
