Maths

Overview

Mathematics is taught to all pupils in Years 7 & 8. Students follow the National Curriculum at a level best suited to their ability. GCSE mathematics is taken by all students at key Years 9 / 10 / 11. They are entered through the Edexcel exam board. Most employers and colleges ask for a specific grade in GCSE Maths – often at ‘C’ or above.

Almost all jobs require you to be ‘numerate’ even if you chose a career that does not involve a specific grade at GCSE, the skills learnt will help you in many areas of adult life – budgeting, getting the best deal in shops, cooking etc.
