Key Stage Three
Key Stage Three serves as a foundation that students use to build up their knowledge and expertise in preparation for GCSE. For this reason, students begin to develop their knowledge of Algebra, Geometry, Statistics and Probability. All students are assessed internally throughout the year to determine their progress with end of year exams that assess content in its entirety.

Key Stage Four
In Key Stage Four, students follow the Edexcel GCSE Mathematics specification. As part of this, students are challenged to hone their skills and become proficient in Algebra, Geometry, Statistics and Probability. Final assessment is 100% external and spilt across three examinations at the end of Year 11. Students will have the opportunity to sit either the higher or foundation paper in these examinations. This decision is made as a school during their time in Year 11.

Key Stage Five
Studying Mathematics at A Level is an incredibly challenging but rewarding endeavour. The rigor of the A Level Maths specification ensures that students leave the Sixth Form with the necessary skills to start reading Mathematics at university or commence higher level apprenticeships. Topics studied include Algebraic Fractions, Exponential functions, Binomial Theorem and Trigonometry. The new Mathematics specification commences in September 2017 and therefore will be a linear course moving forward.
