Key Stage 3

The Key Stage 3 curriculum is split up into four main strands: Algebra, Number, Shape and Space and Handling data and lasts for 2 years. Assessments are carried out throughout the key stage on a fortnightly basis to inform teaching and learning. Problem solving skills and GCSE-style questions are used during all topics and in all year groups in order to prepare students for the Key Stage 4 scheme for learning.

If you wish to know more about the Key Stage 3 curriculum, please contact Mr Tiley.

Key Stage 4

The Key Stage 4 scheme of work is started in year 9. Students are taught mathematical skills and work on applying this knowledge to worded problems and cross topic questions. Students are assessed on each topic to ensure understanding and are given diagnostic feedback on that topic, if needed, to ensure understanding before moving on. They are also given the opportunity to complete past exam papers and are given exam type questions throughout the course. At the end of year 11 students will complete 3 examination papers; Paper 1 is a non-calculator paper and the other two are calculator papers. Each exam is 1 hour and 30 minutes long.
