At KS3 our students’ progress in Mathematics is assessed termly. Each half term is a unit of work where the content builds in complexity over time in terms of both content and application. At KS4, students’ progress is assessed through AQA GCSE marking criteria. The Scheme of Learning is used across a number of Secondary schools within the Trust and originated from Wymondham College. The Scheme of Learning is progressive over five years whilst allowing time for students to revisit and consolidate their learning whilst at OBHS.
Assessment at the end of KS4 is by three written papers, each one is one and a half hours long and they have equal weighting. Paper 1 is non-calculator and papers 2 and 3 are where calculators are allowed. There is no coursework component at KS4.
There are many OBHS habits that are valued in every lesson with determination and resilience being key factors for students to succeed in this subject.
