Pupils in the top set will have the opportunity to study a GCSE in further maths if they are achieving the top grades by the end of year 10

Assessment of Learning

Pupils in all year groups will complete a topic review at the end of a learning cycle (approx every 3 weeks). This is open book and will be given a GCSE grade.

Years 7 & 8

Once per term pupils will complete an exam which covers all aspects of the curriculum. We use progression steps for these assessments which link to the stepped homework booklets that pupils complete once per fortnight.

Year 9,10 & 11

Once per term pupils will complete a mock exam which covers all aspects of the curriculum. Pupils will be provided with a revision list and mathswatch clips to help them revise.

The exam board we use is Edexcel
