At Key Stage 4, students work towards a GCSE in mathematics following the Pearson/Edexcel specification. However if it is deemed more appropriate, students can study for a Functional Skills qualification instead.
We strive to engage all students in mathematical learning, in practical and creative ways, through a broad curriculum, in order to plug any gaps that they may have. On entry, each student completes a baseline so that we can establish their areas of strength and areas for development. We work with each individual to develop their understanding of all aspects of mathematics including number, geometry, algebra and statistics. We ensure that all students have opportunities to develop their skills independently but also encourage collaborative work, where appropriate.
