GCSE Maths.
Core Curriculum GCSE Maths.

Students follow the Edexcel GCSE (9-1) Mathematics course. This is assessed through three equally-weighted, written examination papers at either Foundation tier or Higher tier.

Paper 1 is the only non-calculator paper. Each of the three examination papers at both tiers will be out of 80 marks with a duration of 1 hour 30 minutes. Questions are targeted at grades 5–1 at Foundation tier and at grades 9–4 at Higher tier.

The curriculum will cover:

  • Number
  • Algebra
  • Ratio, Proportion and Rates of Change
  • Geometry and Measure
  • Probability and Statistics
  • This content is delivered through eight hours of lesson time every fortnight, alongside directed private study tasks.
