Year 9, 10 and 11 follow the EDEXCEL GCSE course as advised by the exam board.  Where any class is at any one time will be determined by the ability of the class. The following outlines the topics followed by the department at Foundation and Higher level.  Not all students will complete the entire course and teachers have the flexibility in year 11 to chance the order if considered appropriate.
