APP for andriod and apple devices avaialable.

The maths department are excited to be introducing the pixl maths app, which can be downloaded onto phones and tablets free of charge, to aid with maths homework and revision for exams and support the work during lessons.

The app gives the students the access to a wealth of video examples and interactive questions which will enhance their understanding and support the progress of each individual. Students have been trialing this app throughout this term and feedback has been extremly positive. We have seen improvement in the engagment in lessons and homework where the app is involved.

Each student has a personal log on which tracks their progress across all the keys areas in mathematics. This gives each student individualised targets and focuses their learning on their own areas for development. The app is free to download and is available on all smartphones, tablets and pc's and only requires internet connection to download and log on.

The PiXl Maths App is designed around the concept of PLC’s, students identify and work on their own personal areas for development. They need to become successful at the skills they aren’t so good at for success in the exams.

Year 9 Guided Choices Evening – Thursday 2 February

Year 9 Parents and Carers – Attending this evening is extremely important as it is when your son/daughter will receive the choices available to them at Key Stage 4 and you will be able to ask for help and guidance on the process.

This is your opportunity to talk to subject teachers to find out more about the courses on offer. It is also the time to start considering the options available at the end of year 11.
