Year 11 Maths Test 9-10 October
All Year 11 students will set a non-calculator paper during their timetabled maths lesson on Tuesday 9 October or Wednesday 10 October. This will be the first of five “exam cycles” they will complete during Year 11 to ensure they are best prepared for their GCSE exams in the summer. Once they have completed this paper they will receive individual question level analysis to aid their revision.

Calling the (Maths) curious
Students in Key Stage 3 are invited to explore mystery and history, activities and oddities, puzzles and problems through the Parallel Project: a weekly collection of maths problems for students to tackle to feed their curiosity. Pupils can sign up at http://www.parallel.org.uk using the school code 3hf8ac.
Students will receive answers and feedback each week, as well as being notified each Thursday of the new challenge. Happy puzzling…
