Key Stage 3 and 4

  • Key Stage 3 (7 hours per fortnight)
  • Key Stage 4 (8 hours per fortnight)

Students are set according to ability.  All students will follow one of four pathways through a 5-year scheme of work. This will cover all appropriate Key Stage 3 and 4 content which will build up to their GCSE examinations.

Mathematics GCSE follows a two-tier system: Higher and Foundation. Depending on their pathway, students learning will be focussed towards one of these tiers during years 10 & 11.

Key Stage 5

Students can choose to study A level Mathematics. We currently follow the reformed Edexcel programme. The course includes Pure Mathematics (2/3), and Applied Mathematics: Statistics & Mechanics (1/3). Students will learn content over the two years and will assessed by examination at the end of Year 13.
