In Y7 the students are set based on achievement at KS2 and additional information gained from staff at the feeder schools. Through Y7 and Y8 the students follow the MyMaths curriculum which embraces the problem solving and application of mathematics element. Students will follow either a ‘Pathway’ to offer opportunities of challenge or follow an individual textbook that increases in challenge over time.

- Pathway C (1C, 2C, 3C) students study chapters in depth through the three texts.
- Pathway B (1B, 2B, 3B) students study chapters in depth through the three texts.
- Pathway A (1A, 2A, 3A) students study chapters in depth through the three texts.
- Individual textbooks – students will work through the textbooks throughout Y7 and Y8, for example 2A followed by 3A.

Throughout year 7 and year 8 students will undertake regular assessments in the form of end of chapter tests with an additional assessment at the end of the year. The end of year 7 assessment covers the work studied during that academic year. However, the end of year 8 assessment is one set by The Two Counties Trust and taken by all year 8 students within the trust.

Below is a sample of the topics studied by students following an individual textbook.

NOTE: The topic order is subject to change in relation to the needs of the students.

Higher | Initial | Bronze | Silver | Gold |

### Year 9

Year 9 students will begin the OCR J560 GCSE Maths course, their starting point is dependent on the understanding and progress made in Y7 and 8. The GCSE course is broken down into a series of modules that increase in difficulty; Initial, Bronze, Silver and Gold with the additional module of Platinum for the Foundation tier students. In January of Y11, a final decision will be made as to which tier of entry a student will be entered for, the Foundation tier covers grades 1 to 5 and the Higher tier covers grades 4 to 9.

### Year 10

Year 10 students continue with the OCR J560 GCSE Maths course, progress and understanding acquired in Y9 is also taken into consideration. The GCSE course is broken down into a series of modules that increase in difficulty; Initial, Bronze, Silver, Gold and Platinum for the Foundation tier.

In January of Y11, a final decision will be made as to which tier of entry a student will be entered for, the Foundation tier covers grades 1 to 5 and the Higher tier covers grades 4 to 9.

### Year 11

Year 11 students continue and complete the OCR J560 GCSE Maths course, progress and understanding acquired in Y10 is also taken into consideration. The GCSE course is broken down into a series of modules that increase in difficulty; Initial, Bronze, Silver, Gold and Platinum for the Foundation tier.

During Y11 students will additionally embark on a revision programme to ensure that they are fully prepared for the GCSE examinations.

In January of Y11, a final decision will be made as to which tier of entry a student will be entered for, the Foundation tier covers grades 1 to 5 and the Higher tier covers grades 4 to 9.

The GCSE examination comprises of three 1hour 30minute examinations of which one with taken without a calculator.

Further to the GCSE Mathematics course, students will (on an individual basis) be entered for the AQA GCSE Statistics examination. Statistics is taught alongside and in conjunction with the GCSE maths curriculum.
