Maths is a core subject at East Leake Academy and we are committed to providing the very best mathematical education to students of all ages and abilities.
Year 7 will follow the Diverse Academies’ mastery curriculum which will be updated regularly.
Study for GCSE mathematics will commence in year 8 and students follow a three-year programme.
Years 10 and 11
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.
The GCSE course actually starts in Year 8 and enables the academy to deliver the increased content of the new maths GCSE across three years, and also gives time for revision in Year 11. The new content will enable Foundation students to reach a higher level than before and Higher students to bridge the gap to A Level maths.
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.
