Key Stage 4 

All students are studying towards the Twin Pair Pilot which means that students will have the opportunity to gain 2 GCSEs in mathematics; one in Methods in Mathematics and the other in Applications of Mathematics. The awarding body is the Edexcel examination board. Students will sit the Applications of Mathematics at either foundation or higher tier at the end of Year 10 and the majority will sit the Methods in Mathematics at higher tier at the end of Year 11. Students that do really well in Year 10 will have the opportunity to study a third qualification in Further Mathematics. This qualification, which is equivalent to a GCSE, is considered a higher and more advanced GCSE in mathematics; the highest grade possible is an A* with distinction. The awarding body is the AQA examination board.

Year 1

All students study GCSE Methods in Mathematics which comprises of two units:

Unit 1 - Overview of content

  1. Number
  2. Algebra
  3. Geometry
  4. Probability

Overview of assessment

  • One written paper
  • Tiered papers
  • Foundation Tier grades C-G available
  • Higher Tier grades A*-D available (E allowed)
  • 1 hour 45 minutes (Foundation paper)
  • 1 hour 45 minutes (Higher paper)
