All students study maths in Year 10 and Year 11, following the AQA linear GCSE course.  This consists of three exams at the end of the course.

This course consists of three exams at the end of the course. A calculator may not be used for paper 1 but can be used for papers 2 and 3. Students of all abilities will have the opportunity to gain a good grade at GCSE and will be encouraged to reach their full academic potential.

The mathematics GCSE is a demanding course and includes problem solving skills and application of mathematics in context. It is vital that students apply themselves from the start of year 10 and take responsibility for their own progress as well as reviewing topics from previous years that they need to improve.

The mathematics GCSE will equip students with the skills that they will need for future pathways, critical thinking and mathematical acumen.


Students will be formally assessed on a half termly or termly basis, depending on their year group.  Year 10 and 11 students will take mock exams.
