Maths class at Christleton High School

We believe that Maths should be both interesting and enjoyable. Students should be challenged and encouraged to fulfil their potential. Upon entering the school in Year 7, students are set based on the score achieved in their KS2 test.

Years 7 and 8

The year groups are divided into two parallel bands of 4 sets. These sets remain flexible and are changed as a result of regular assessments of the students to ensure that all students are working at the correct level for their ability.

Years 9 - 11

Students continue in two parallel bands of 4 sets up to Year 10. In Year 11 the classes are merged streamlined into 8 sets. All students follow the new Edexcel linear GCSE specification and sit their exam in the Summer of Year 11.

Students have the opportunity to study for certificates in Maths alongside their GCSE courses. The top sets will study Edexcel’s Level 3 certificate in Algebra which prepares them for advanced courses in the sixth form. Lower sets also study for Edexcel’s Level 1 & 2 certificates in Number and Measures, which can be a useful aid to post-16 applications.

Years 12 and 13

The course includes modules in Pure Mathematics, Statistics and Mechanics. For the more able, we also offer both A Level and AS Level Further Maths which extends the A Level topics to a higher level.
