In Years 10 and 11, all students follow the Edexcel GCSE Mathematics (A) Linear Course (1MA0).
The subject content is organised into three broad areas:
- Number & Algebra
- Geometry & Measures
- Statistics & Probability
Exams are available at the Higher Level (grades A* - D) or Foundation Level (grades C - G). The level taken by students depends on their ability and teacher recommendation.
In lessons, students use the David Rayner GCSE Revision and Practice books.
Homework books accompanying the class text, are lent to students to use at home. A refundable deposit of £5 is required.
Mathswatch revision DVD's are offered for students to purchase throughout the year (highly recommended).
The most able students in Years 10 & 11 are given the chance to study for the AQA Level 2 Certificate in Further Mathematics alongside their GCSE in Maths.
Students are only entered for external examinations at the end of Year 11.
