Pupils will be following the EDEXCEL Pearson ActiveLearn Scheme of Work from the beginning of Year 9. They will be set according to ability and will either be entered for the Foundation Tier (Grades 1-5) or the Higher Tier (4-9). A final decision on which tier a pupil is entered into will be made in Year 11 depending on progress and target data.
Pupils will receive topic assessments on whole past paper tests on a termly basis depending on the time of year. It is the department’s strong belief that if a pupils wishes to study the Higher tier they need to achieve at least 25% on past papers on a regular basis.
