All year groups are assessed each term, working towards the final GCSE exam at the end of Year 11.
Students in maths sit the OCR exam series.
There are three papers to be taken at the end of the GCSE course in Year 11.
Each paper will be 1 hour and 30 minutes long.

If you require any further information, please contact the maths faculty.
For our most able students we also offer the AQA Further Maths Level 2 qualification. This is suitable for those students who are expected to get grades 8 and 9 in GCSE Mathematics and who are likely to progress to A-level study in Mathematics and possibly Further Mathematics
It gives high achieving students an introduction to AS level topics that will help them to develop skills in:
Assessment is linear: paper 1, non-calculator paper 2, calculator, both 1 hour 45 minutes. This qualification is now graded 9-1.
