Mathematics is taught to all pupils throughout their five years at the school. All pupils are grouped based on their ability which is ascertained through KS2 results as well as through our own rigorous testing on arrival and during their time with us.
Pupils in year 7 and 8 now follow our new KS3 levelled scheme. This scheme teaches each group based on their starting level. It then allows them to cover the topics at and just above this level. This method enables pupils to learn at their level along with their peers. At the end of every half term there is a formal assessment to monitor the pupils progress.
In years 9, 10 and 11 the pupils study for the GCSE exam; following the Edexcel linear course. 100% of the pupils’ final grade is assessed through examination, allowing a complete focus throughout the three years. Each pupil is set based on their current grade and their predicted grade. Each pupil is pushed to reach their full potential by being taught by specialist teachers along with strong interventions such as after school clubs (most notably the ever popular ‘A-Team’).
