GCSE

Back to Secondary

Supporting schools to adapt to the new GCSE, the new content and the emphasis on problem solving.

As a Hub we are looking to support and work with schools as we adapt to the demands of the new GCSE curriculum. We have opportunities to develop students’ reasoning skills at KS4 to ensure they are better prepared for the new style questions through our Reasoning at KS4 workgroup. We know that some topics have proved difficult to teach, be that the new challenging material at foundation level such as trigonometry, or the new content on higher papers.

Our Challenging Topics at GCSE workgroup should help both teacher subject knowledge of new material, but also that question of how we can best teach certain topics, which are new to the tiers. The group should create and try out ready to use resources and ideas, which we can add to schemes of learning.

There is also the subject leader network for an opportunity for heads of department and aspiring heads of department to analyse the results together and share experiences and the first cohort.
