OTHER INFORMATION
In Year 10, our students continue on their KS4 GCSE journey, where we consolidate the knowledge and skills previously acquired and engage with more complex topics. By the end of this year, students would have covered most of the GCSE curriculum content. We use performance data and our knowledge of each students’ mathematical acumen to form the Y10 Higher and Foundation sets. There are three main assessment points throughout the year where students are given the opportunity to demonstrate their knowledge and understanding. One of these assessment points will be in the exam hall. In addition there are biweekly assessments throughout the day. All students are expected to be proactive in seeking assistance and to take ownership of their learning, which includes working independently.

OTHER INFORMATION
Higher and Foundation Tier pathways are set early in the year and changes to these are unlikely. Potentially, Higher Tier students could attain a maximum of a Grade 9; whereas those on the Foundation Tier could attain a Grade 5. Our focus is on the review of high-impact skills and concepts, mastery of routine problems, and regular exposure to ‘exam-style’ questions (the sophistication thereof to be individualised to suit the needs of each student). There are four main assessment points throughout the year as well as regular biweekly assessments. All students are expected to be proactive in seeking assistance and take ownership of their learning, which includes working independently and attending additional tutorials.
