Year 10 Maths

Overview:

In year 10 students are set into ability groups across the whole year, based on their Key Stage 3 results in year 9. There are currently eight sets in year 10. While movement between sets is possible at any time, the department tries to ensure that a teacher will keep the same group from year 9 to year 11.

Sets 1-3 follow the Higher Course ( Grades A* to D )

Sets 5 to 9 follow the Foundation Course ( Grades C to G )
