Key Stage 4 Curriculum
We offer a GCSE in Mathematics which is operated by the AQA examination board.
This is a linear course. There is no coursework involved in the Mathematics GCSE.
However, the curriculum is delivered in a practical way which involves many real world
applications of mathematics.
