Changes to Y11 Mathematics Groups

Dear Parent/Carer

We have made an important change to Year 11 Mathematics so that the progress and achievement of our students can reach their potential. The decision was not easily arrived at and we are aware that it may cause concern for some of our students and parents. However, the decision has been made to designate the teaching of Year 11 to a specialist set of teachers. As a result there will be changes in some students' classes and teachers. 

From today, students will start an intensive programme in preparation for their exams. Students and yourselves will regularly be updated with information about topics they have mastered and those they are still working towards. 

I am confident that in Summer 2018 we will be celebrating excellent GCSE Mathematics results with all students. In the meantime though, if you have any questions, please do not hesitate to get in touch with me. 

Yours sincerely

Mr Alastair James

Head of Mathematics
