Key Stage 4

In KS4 we follow the GCSE course. The grades are being replaced by a numbering system that goes from 1 to 9, 9 being the highest.

The GCSE course is a direct continuation of the Key stage 3 work.

The main topics are outlined below.

Foundation Tier:

Collecting, Organising, Presenting and Analysing Data

Accuracy and Rounding

Geometric constructions and calculations

Solving of Equations

Indices and
Standard Form

Compound Units

Primes, Factors and Multiples

Assessment for GCSE

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.

The Foundation tier covers grades 1-5 and the Higher tier covers grades 4-9.

For two of the papers a calculator is allowed and for one paper a calculator is not allowed.

If you require any further information, please contact your son’s maths teacher.
