Key Stage 3

Mathematics at KS3 looks at a wide range of topics, incorporating number, algebra, ratio and proportion, geometry and measures, and statistics and probability into different units.

Both Years 7 and 8 will complete the same units of work but at varying degrees of challenge and depth. Pupils in Year 9 then begin the GCSE curriculum.

Year 8

Unit 1: Arithmetic; Fractions, Decimals and Percentages; Accuracy

Unit 9: Pythagoras and Tigonometry


Unit 2: Algebraic Manipulation and Equations

Unit 10: Forming and Solving Equations

Unit 3: Sequences, Functions and Graphs

Unit 11: Area and Perimeter

Unit 4: Lines, Angles and Shapes

Unit 12: Probability

Unit 5: Data and Interpreting Results

Unit 13: Volume and Surface Area

Unit 6: Construction and Loci

Unit 14: Measures

Unit 7: Transformations

Unit 15: Inequalities

Unit 8: Ratio and Proportion


Year 9

Unit 1: Number Unit 1: Number
Unit 2: Algebra Unit 2: Algebra
Unit 3: Graphs, tables and charts Unit 3: Interpreting and representing data
Unit 4: Fractions and percentages Unit 4: Fractions, ratio and proportion
Unit 5: Equations, inequalities and sequences Unit 5: Angles and trigonometry
Unit 6: Angles Unit 6: Graphs

Key Stage 4

The Edexcel Mathematics syllabus is divided into six areas:

  • Number
  • Algebra
  • Ration, proportion and rates of change
  • Geometry and measures
  • Probability
  • Statistics

The curriculum is designed to develop mathematical knowledge and oral, written and practical skills. It also aims to apply mathematics in everyday situations and develop an understanding of the part which mathematics plays in the world. The current specification places a greater emphasis on Functional Maths and on pupils being able to explain their reasoning.

Pupils are entered for mathematics GCSE at one of two different tier.

They are:

* Foundation Tier

GCSE grades available 1 – 5

* Higher Tier

GCSE grades available 4 - 9

Almost all students will be entered at the higher level; a very few students who have difficulty accessing higher tier questions will be entered at the foundation tier. Parents will be informed of the tier of entry.
