##### Assessment

Internal assessments take place every half-term.

KS4 Exam Board Specification: Pearson Edexcel Level 1/Level 2 GCSE (9 – 1) in Mathematics (1MA1)

##### Enrichment Offer

Within the Mathematics department, we offer a variety of enrichment activities across both Key Stages to promote enjoyment and excitement in mathematics. Pupils are invited to test their problem-solving skills by participating in local and national competitions.

The Academy also subscribes to the mathematics website Mathswatch, which allows pupils to access topic-based worksheets and interactive lessons at home as well as in the Academy. These can be used to reinforce understanding and are an excellent revision tool.

Furthermore, our committed department runs intervention sessions for our Key Stage 4 pupils during both lunchtimes and after school. These small, bespoke classes consolidate prior learning and ensure maximum attainment.
