At PAC we hit the ground running in mathematics!
We assess our new Year 7 students to find out exactly which topics they already understand and which one they need to work on to make progress.
At Prestwich Arts College we maintain a rigorous focus on ensuring that all students make progress, right from day 1 of Year 7.
In Mathematics, no one treads water at PAC!!!
Our focus on making progress continues throughout Key Stage 3.
KS3 follows a three year course aimed at providing the skills needed to excel at GCSE.
This covers: Numbers and the Number System; Algebra; Geometry and Measures; Handling Data and Probability.
Years 10 and 11 follow the Edexcel GCSE course over 2 tiers.
GCSE Mathematics is assessed entirely by three terminal examinations of 90 minutes each. Paper 1 is non‐calculator, the other two are calculator allowed.
