All maths classes are set according to ability. This allows the teacher and department to set work which is appropriate for each student within a class. We want to stretch, support and challenge all of our students.

Students will have the opportunity to move sets throughout the year in order to match their progress and performance. In Year 7 there are six maths sets, three in each of Blue and Red Band. 7maB1, 7maB2, 7maR1, 7maR2, 7maR3.
