Key Stage 4

At KS4 in year 11 we prepare pupils for the Edexcel Linear Couse. This consists of two exam papers - one with calculator and one without a calculator. The dates for 2016 are 26 May 2016 paper 1 and 9 June 2016 paper 2, they are both am morning papers.

We use a variety of resources, including ‘Mathswatch’, Mymaths website , revision books and a core text book from Longman –  this is available on moodle.

Pupils will need a scientific calculator of their own for use with classwork, homework and in the exam.  We usually have some reasonably priced calculators at school.

Mock exams will take place this year for Year 11 in November 2015 and Year 10 in March 2016.

Year 10 New GCSE specification

From summer 2017  pupils will sit the New GCSE and gain grades from 9 to 1. The new exam will consist of 3 papers each of 1hour 30 mins and will be one non calculator and 2 calculator papers. and as a rough guide grade 5 is equivalent to the old C/B. and the top 20% of the old A* grades will be grade 9.Finish with  examples and question can be accessed using your child's 'Active Learn' account.

Past GCSE Papers

Your GCSE's will consist of a Non Calculator and a Calculator paper.
The papers take 1 hour 45 minutes each.
Foundation papers cover grades C - G
Higher papers cover grades A* - D
