Students continue to follow the new national curriculum throughout Key Stage 4. This is designed for students to be stretched and challenged and ensures problem-solving, fluency and reasoning questions are involved in all lessons. Students are given strategies to approach problem-solving questions, for example using bar modelling. There are also real-life contextualised questions (including questions on Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths, STEM) to help students explore how mathematical problem-solving can be applied to practical activities.


Students in Year 10 are assessed three times during the year, including one PPE (Pre Public Exam) at the end of Year 10. This formal assessment is complemented by a series of regular topic tests which take place approximately every three weeks, throughout the year.

Year 10 students are entered for their exams in two tiers of entry: Higher and Foundation.
