GCSE morning

GCSE morning

Fourteen of our Year Six pupils sat their first Maths Foundation GCSE paper this morning at Hulme Grammar. This is an optional examination we offer for our most advanced mathematicians. In┬áprevious years, almost all of our pupils entered have achieved a “C” or above; this year there is a new Foundation GCSE, where the top grade available is a “5”. (“4” represents the old grade C).

They all seemed to cope well with the morning; I am very proud of them for having the character as well as the aptitude to take on this challenge.
