Mathematics - GCSE

9-1 GCSE

At GCSE, students follow the AQA specification at Higher or Foundation tier according to their ability. The year group is arranged in six sets of increasing ability with regular monitoring to ensure students are on track and working towards the appropriate qualification.

All students will study the same topics to a differing degree of complexity depending on their tier of entry and capability. There are two tiers of entry - Foundation (where a grade of 1-5 can be awarded) and Higher (where grades 4-9 will be available).
