Mathematics

KS2 data is used to set the pupils into groups before arrival in September. Years 7 – 11 study Mathematics and all classes are set according to ability.
We test students ability every half, and full term and we adjust sets at the end of the year.
Some changes do take place during the year for pupils who are excelling beyond their target level/grade or requiring more support.


 

KS3 Maths
In Year 7 to Year 9 we study the National Curriculum for Mathematics;

In the Autumn Term, the topics covered are;
Number 1 & 2, Algebra 1 & 2, Shape, Space and Measure 1 & 2, Handling Data 1.

In the Spring Term, the topics covered are;
Number 3 & 4, Algebra 3 & 4, Shape, Space and Measure 3, Handling Data 2.

In the Summer term, the topics covered are;
Number 5, Algebra 5, Shape, Space and Measure 4 & 5, Handling Data 3

We have a test at the end of each half term and each term. We also assess at the end of each topic.


 

KS4 Maths
The KS4 students at La Mare De Carteret High School currently study the Edexcel Maths GCSE.
The 2 year GCSE course commences at the beginning of year 10, with an opportunity of early entry in the summer of year 10, a resit opportunity in November of year 11 and a final opportunity during the summer of year 11.
As a result of changes happening within education, which are enforced by the Government, from September 2015, we will be delivering the Edexcel iGCSE Maths course in KS4.

There are two tiers of entry; foundation and higher.

  • Grades available for foundation are C – G
  • Grades available for higher are A* – D

The exam consists of 2 calculator papers and each one lasts 2 hours.
