Year 11

Intervention/revision sessions run on Tuesdays between 3:30pm and 5pm. Students are expected to bring work they need help with such as an exam paper or revision workbook in order to ensure they are making the best use of their time.

Key Stage 5 (Sixth Form) Overview:

We offer A Level Maths in Year 12 and currently have A level Maths and Further Maths running in Year 13.

Year 12 have begun following the new A level specification whilst Year 13 are currently the last cohort going through the older specification.

We follow Edexcel for both specifications. For more information see https://qualifications.pearson.com/en/qualifications/edexcel-a-levels/mathematics-2017.html

In Year 12 we have access to the Pearson Active Learn resources with all textbooks online.
