All students will work towards the GCSE in mathematics with the EdExcel examining board. To achieve this qualification all students must sit three examinations at the end of the course. These three examinations consist of one non-calculator exam and two calculator exams. This is still a two-tier qualification so boys can be entered for either the higher or foundation tier. This GCSE in mathematics covers all areas of the mathematics curriculum, preparing students for careers and further study.

Higher tier: The examination covers Grades 3-9.
