In the Numeracy Faculty we are fortunate to have 8 hard working innovative members of staff who work relentlessly to give every opportunity of success for the students in our care. We are also incredibly lucky to have access to such outstanding facilities; this includes 8 fully equipped classrooms with everything our students need to gain the greatest success. In addition the faculty hosts an open plan ICT suite, which enhances the learning experience of the students giving them access to the ever changing technology of today’s world.
KS3 (Years 7 to 8)
When joining the academy students undergo an initial assessment in mathematics, the result of this assessment will ensure that students are placed on the most suitable learning pathway:
Students that achieve:
The expected standard will begin the “Theta” 2 year course which will prepare them for either the foundation or the higher GCSE
Above the expected standard will begin the “Delta” 2 year course which will prepare them for the higher GCSE
Below the expected standard will begin the “Pi” 2 year course which will prepare them for the foundation GCSE, in addition students that achieve below the expected standard will be invited to extra catch-up sessions that take place at the end of The Academy day.
KS4 (Years 9 to 11)
At the end of year 8 students will be assessed to determine which of the following 3 year pathways is the most appropriate: Higher Tier GCSE where grades 4 to 9 can be achieved or Foundation Tier GCSE where grades 1 to 5 can be achieved.
