"A good graph is worth a thousand words" - Dennis Johnston
GCSE mathematics is split into a higher and a foundation course. The courses cover a vast amount of
content which pupils will have started to cover already in Year 9. Content builds upon prior knowledge
learnt throughout their school lives and is assessed through final examinations in the summer of Year
Maths is a subject that is rich, challenging and enjoyable. It is a core subject at GCSE level and provides
students with a qualification that will give greater freedom of choice for their career opportunities,
especially when coupled with English.
