About the course
The students follow a vibrant curriculum which encompasses the new national curriculum. We approach each unit of work with the expectation that students will make the best progress possible. Our team works dynamically to establish prior knowledge, deliver challenging lessons and use assessment to build confident mathematicians who are prepared for the challenges of Key Stage 4 and beyond.
Year 7 and Year 8 follow the same order of topics. Year 7 focuses on mastering the basic building blocks of each topic. The year 8 content recaps topics taught in year 7 and expands on the skills and difficulty.
There is an interview at the school as well as a short teaching activity for which you will have planning time. You will teach a group of students and be observed. There will also be a subject interview and a written task.
Tutors from Wolverhampton University will also be part of the interview process.
Visits prior to interview are encouraged please contact the school directly to arrange this.
