Mathematics

Mathematics - Key Stage 4

Years 9 - 11
GCSE Mathematics

The foundation tier of GCSE Mathematics (grades C-G) provides an emphasis on the essentials of the subject, along with an introduction to problem-solving in practical situations.

The higher tier (grades A*-C) develops a wider and more abstract repertoire.  At this level students encounter demanding areas of the subject and use their abilities to solve problems of greater complexity.

An outline of each syllabus is given below.  Note that Year 9 students follow a course designed both to stimulate interest and provide a firm basis for GCSE.  Further details are available in the relevant schemes of work.
