Some of the content in these schemes of learning may differ during the academic year 2020-2021 as departments prioritise skills and knowledge from the extended period of remote learning from March to July 2019-2020 and plan for periods of remote learning during this academic year.

How and when is my child assessed?

Students will sit one exam paper in January of Year 11 that test the knowledge and skills associated with Unit 1. All other units are assessed by students providing a portfolio of evidence that addresses tasks laid out in a series of Assignments. This evidence is assessed in school and moderated by the exam board.

Teaching Strategies



It is vital that all students stay up to date and meet deadlines and regular contact will be used if students are at risk of falling behind. The content of Unit 1 will be a key focus for homework and on-going revision. The work that we complete in class will form the best revision guide for students and they should be revisiting concepts throughout the course to prepare effectively for their exam. Some past papers and mark schemes are available here.
