Key Stage 4 Mathematics

In Year 10, students at Barnsley Academy begin working towards their GCSE exams. They have five maths lessons per week. Below is an overview of the order of topics across the two years, for both Higher and Foundation courses. Decisions regarding Higher and Foundation tiering begin to take place at Christmas in Y10, often these decisions are not finalised until Y11 where some students will move to tier to support them achieve the best grade possible.
