Mathematics Department Information
Key Stage 4
At KS4, students are taught in sets of between approximately 15 students for the lowest sets and 30 students for the top sets, providing those who need the most support with a better teacher to pupil ratio, with 7 lessons per fortnight. Students are set at the end of Year 9 and there is rarely movement between sets, and then only in exceptional circumstances. We teach topics across 2-3 weeks followed by a Topic Review written by the exam board AQA. Mock exams take place early in Year 11. The Progress Ladder is an Excel document which provides the students with a detailed breakdown of the topics and allows them to track their understanding and test results with additional resource locations provided for further study.
