GCSE Maths

In Key Stage 4 students will have four hours a week of maths lessons. These lessons will consist of completing the GCSE specification, weekly skills, exam preparation and exam papers. Students will receive homework fortnightly.

We also offer top sets the chance in Year 11 to sit an additional GSCE called Further Maths to help bridge the gap to A-level Maths.
