Course Content
Maths is one of the core subjects of the National Curriculum and is compulsory.
Year 10 will be studying the new GCSE (9-1) in Mathematics. Many features of the new exam will be similar to the previous GCSE exams, however there is an increased emphasis on students being able to demonstrate their understanding of concepts and apply their mathematical skills through problem solving based in a range of contexts.
There is no coursework or controlled assessment in Maths, just 3 exams all of which will be sat at the end of Year 11.
As with previous maths GCSE exams the papers are a mixture of calculator and non-calculator exams and students will be entered at either Higher or Foundation Tier.

For all maths exams you will need some specialist equipment:
A protractor
A pair of compasses
A scientific calculator

(Casio scientific calculators are available to purchase from the Maths team through parentpay)
