Key Stage 4 Our Year 10/11 students currently follows the Edexcel Level 1/Level 2 GCSE (9–1) in Mathematics Specification (1MA1) which allows each student to achieve a graded 9-1 GCSE in Mathematics.
GCSE Qualification aims and objectives are to enable students to:
- develop fluent knowledge, skills and understanding of mathematical methods and concepts
- acquire, select and apply mathematical techniques to solve problems
- reason mathematically, make deductions and inferences, and draw conclusions
- comprehend, interpret and communicate mathematical information in a variety of forms appropriate to the information and context.
Based on students covering differing elements of the curriculum in their previous schools, a flexible approach has been adopted towards the order of topics taught and also the length of time allocated to each topic.
