KS4

All students follow the Edexcel Mathematics Specification 1MA1. For further information, please click here Edexcel GCSE Maths

To support learning through this course students follow a variety of other qualifications:

Edexcel Statistics Awards (Levels 1-3); For further information, please click here Edexcel Statistics Awards

Edexcel Number and Measures Awards (Levels 1-2); For further information, please click here Edexcel Number & Measure Awards

Edexcel Algebra Awards (Levels 2-3). For further information, please click here Edexcel Algebra Awards

For those students who have difficulty in accessing the GCSE specification, the OCR Entry Level Certificate R448 is used. For further information, please click here OCR Certificate in Mathematics

Year 9

From September to January, students follow the Edexcel Statistics Award at either level 1 or level 2.  Upon completion of this in January of Year 9, students begin to follow the Edexcel Scheme of Work covering the following units:

Foundation:  Number; Algebra; Fractions and Percentages; Equations, inequalities and sequences; Angles

Higher:  Number; algebra; Fractions, ratios and percentages; Angles and trigonometry

Year 10

From September to January, students follow the Edexcel Number and Measures Award at either Level 1 or Level 2 (for students on the foundation tier) and the Edexcel Algebra Award at level 2 (for students on the higher tier).  Upon completion of this in January students revert to following the Edexcel Scheme of Work covering the following units:

Foundation:  Perimeter, area and volume 1; Graphs; Transformations; Ratio and Proportion; Right-angled triangles, Multiplicative Reasoning;

Higher:  Graphs; Area and Volume; Transformations and Constructions; Equations and Inequalities; Probability; Multiplicative Reasoning; Similarity and Congruence; More Trigonometry

Year 11

Students continue to follow the respective Edexcel Scheme of Work:

Foundation:  Constructions, Loci and Bearings; Quadratic Equations and Graphs; Perimeter, Area and Volume 2; Fractions, Indices and Standard Form; Congruence, Similarity and Vectors; More Algebra

Higher:  Further Statistics; Equations and Graphs; Circle Theorems; More Algebra; Vectors and Geometric Proof; Proportion and Graphs
