Key Stage 4 begins in Year 9 and is run over 3 years. It is all about preparation for GCSE exams and life beyond as we continue to develop the skills, knowledge and understanding gained at KS3. GCSE Maths will always be an extremely important qualification to have, whether pupils study Mathematics at A level or leave school for college, apprenticeship or employment.

The Pearson Edexcel GCSE Maths course prepares the students to help achieve the best GCSE grade possible. The qualification consists of three equally-weighted written examination papers at either Foundation tier or Higher tier. Paper 1 is a non-calculator assessment and a calculator is allowed for Paper 2 and Paper 3.

The assessments will cover:

  • Number

  • Algebra

  • Ratio, proportion and rates of change

  • Geometry and measures

  • Probability

  • Statistics

We also offer Edexcel GCSE Statistics in which students have the opportunity to investigate concepts through the use of data analysis.


Topics covered include

  • Planning and data collection

  • Processing, representing and analysing data

  • Reasoning, interpreting and discussing results

  • Probability

Key Stage 4 Courses

Students in Years 10 & 11 can choose to study GCSE Statistics in addition to Mathematics.
