At Key Stage 4 we prepare pupils for the AQA GCSE exam and therefore our whole curriculum has the AQA syllabus at its core. We continue to work through coloured stages until the end of Year10 and in Year 11 pupils are given the finishing touches including plenty of 'past paper' practice.
Pupils will sit 3 exams of 1.5 hours, two with a calculator and one without.
To Support Your Learning
We offer Maths Clinic every Monday and Thursday evening after school. This is where pupils are able to speak to a maths teacher about work that they need help with.
We are members of the PiXL Club and as such all our pupil's have access to the 'PiXL Maths App'. This is an online resource that allows pupils to practice skills on their smartphone, tablet or PC.
We are also subscribers to 'MyMaths'. This is another online resource that allows teachers to set homework, and pupils to practice skills with step by step lessons.
We sell CGP Revision Guides in school - please ask your maths teacher for details.
We recommend the follwoing websites to support home study. They have plenty of videos and questions for practice:
- GCSE Take-Away
