Curriculum Intent


In Year 7 and 8, Maths is taught following a concentric model. This allows topics to be revisited several times to help all pupils to develop their mathematical skills.


GCSE Maths is taught in Year 9,10 and 11. Topics are taught in an order that builds pupils’ understanding of the content and improves their confidence in problem solving.  The syllabus is differentiated to enable candidates to show their ability in the subject. There are two overlapping tiers of entry for the GCSE:

Foundation tier - grades 1 to 5 available

Higher tier - grades 4 to 9 available

KS3 and 4 Time plans           Maths GCSE Specification
