Through our Entry Level Certificate pathway, students who struggle with GCSE experience success on their journey towards GCSE. The progress students make in maths has been a consistent strength of the school. We encourage students to make time and space at home for study with regular homework also teaching them how to revise specifically. Support clubs, homework intervention and revision classes are provided to support students who need it. Our curriculum follows a spiral model with areas of maths being mapped out to encourage interleaving between various areas of maths. Teachers in maths routinely challenge their students and demand they think more deeply.
