Maths

Students at The Connected Hub study the Edexcel linear exam, at the appropriate level for them (foundation tier or higher tier). The GCSE exam is made up of 3 papers, one non calculator paper and two calculator papers.

Students study aspects of Data Handling, Algebra, Number and Calculations and Shape, Space and Measure.

Students also have the opportunity to gain Functional Skills qualifications in maths

Some students will be given the opportunity to develop their mathematical skills in relation to the theme of the week within The Connected Hub. While this will not always be possible, the approach will always be to make the learning relevant to everyday life, providing them with the confidence to step out into the world and handle numbers wherever they appear. These students will grow their confidence first through achieving the Entry Level Certificate before being entered for the Functional Skills exams. They will then tackle the GCSE in the summer along with everyone else, confident of their ability.
