Maths at Stockport Academy

Course Details

All students will be entered for the examination in Mathematics. There are two levels of entry:

· Higher tier – which leads to grades  of 4—9 where 9 is the highest grade

· Foundation tier – which lead to grades 1—5

Students are entered for the examination which suits their own ability level.


The course is studied over a period of two years, during which time they will study all areas of Mathematics. The areas covered are: Number, Algebra, Ratio, proportion and rate of change, Geometry and measure, Statistics and probability. Each strand incorporates basic skills, detailed understanding and application to real life situations. By the end of the course, all students will have developed their numeracy skills, as well as skills in the application of logic and problem solving.



The course is assessed through three examination papers taken at the end of the course. The first paper is a non-calculator paper while the second and third are calculator papers. There is no coursework for Mathematics at GCSE level.
