Maths is a core curriculum subject, studied by all pupils at Orchard Mead Academy.

All students at Orchard Mead Academy study Maths for GCSE during Years 10 and 11.

Students are assigned to a pathway based on their prior attainment.

Units follow a stage, not age, model which means that students tackle units of work that suit their ability and the units are not pre-determined by age.

Students are assigned to a pathway based on their prior attainment.

Units follow a stage, not age, model which means that students tackle units of work that suit their ability and the units are not pre-determined by age.

Some students may follow an alternative curriculum to allow them to achieve the Entry Level Certificate.
