Year 7, 8 & 9
Year 7 students are grouped according to their exam results and information provided by primary schools. The year group is split into two halves and the students are placed into ability based groups. Students are tested at various times throughout the year and by an end of year test in June/July.
In Year 8 some movement between these ability groups may occur depending on exam results from the end of Year 7. Again students are tested at various times throughout the year.
Year 9 students continue to be grouped in their ability sets from the previous year, although some movement may occur depending on exam results from the end of Year 8. Again students are tested at various times throughout the year. From spring half term students begin GCSE work.
Students in Years 7 and 8 are often given online homework on the website mymaths
. Students will need to use the school and an individual login to access the site. Internet access is available at school in the library.
