Students are placed in sets based on their Key Stage 2 maths scores at the beginning of year 7; this may change following teacher assessments and formal class tests to ensure that students are always facing an appropriate level of challenge.

There are three tiers of schemes of learning - Extension, Core and Support; the top two sets study the extension scheme and other groups study the core scheme or support scheme depending on their prior attainment.
