Intensive Maths Retakes

At Kingsmead School we try and ensure that all students achieve the best possible grade in Maths.

Year 12 & 13 students do not have regular Maths lessons scheduled during their normal timetable, so additional lessons must take place. Those students who did not achieve a Grade 4 in Year 11 are given the opportunity to re-sit the exam. The first such opportunity is in November of Year 12 and the second in the summer of Year 13. Students are expected to attend one lesson per week after school for 6 weeks before the first exam. This is then followed up by a full week of intensive Maths lessons with the same teacher the before the first exam.

Since the introduction of this format many students have successfully achieved a Grade 4 and progressed on to university, or their chosen career path as a direct result.
