Maths Curriculum

Year 7 - 11

The students will follow a course based on a model of progression which involves 5 yearly stages. Each year students progress to the next stage. The entry point is determined by their Key Stage 2 result. 

Key Stage 3 (Years 7 and 8)

The content of KS3 is divided into four areas; Number, Algebra, Geometry and Statistics. 

To help develop understanding and build upon previous knowledge, key topics are revisited and extended through year 7 and 8, allowing a sound base for moving onto the GCSE course.

Key Stage 4 (Year 9-11)

All students begin to follow the AQA Linear New GCSE. The course is then assessed at the end of year 11 by three papers (two Calculator and one Non-Calculator); there are no controlled assessments or modular exams. There are two levels of entry -  Higher covering grades 4-9 and Foundation covering grades 1-5. The level of entry for a pupil will be decided near the time of the exam and after careful consideration and discussion. 

Current year 11 students follow the Edexcel Linear GCSE Course (1MA0). This course is assessed at the end of year 11 by two papers (Calculator and Non-Calculator); there are no controlled assessments or modular exams. There are two levels of entry -  Higher covering grades D-A* and Foundation covering grades G-C. The level of entry for a pupil will be decided near the time of the exam and after careful consideration and discussion. 

Students expected to achieve the highest grades will be given the opportunity to study and gain an extra qualification OCR FSMQ Additional Mathematics.

Key Stage 5 (Years 12 and 13)

Students that choose to continue with Mathematics at AS and A Level follow the AQA Mathematics Specification course. In addition, we also offer Further Mathematics at AS/A level.
