In year 9 our students will begin their Statistics GCSE course. Students will sit their GCSEs with AQA at the end of the course. End of topic tests are tailor-made to include AQA exam questions and students will sit full GCSE papers at each of the three assessment periods in the year.

In year 11, students will study for the level 2 certificate in further maths. Students’ progress is tracked, with strengths and weaknesses particular to each student identified for everyone. Students will get lots of access to exam papers, with 3 assessment periods conducted like mock exams as well as opportunities to complete parts of exam papers both at home and in lessons. Feedback from these exam papers is central to helping students progress and reach their full potential.
