Maths Key Stage 4
Key Stage 4 Approach
Students follow an AQA Linear GCSE course with two examinations in the summer of Year 11, one calculator and one non-calculator. Students will be entered for either Foundation or Higher tier; the decision on which tier to enter is governed only by a student’s strengths in the subject. Being in a particular mathematics set does not necessarily mean entry at a particular tier of the final exam. At Higher Tier, grades A* to D are available. At Foundation Tier, grades C to G are available.
Homework is generally set weekly and may take a variety of forms e.g. worksheets or activities to consolidate or assess understanding, research or preparation for future lessons, practice exam papers and revision for exams.
