During the Autumn term, students will be offered the opportunity to buy through school, at a much reduced price (currently £1.99 each) a Mathematics Revision Guide and a Mathematics Workbook, both written by Edexcel examiners. Also, a "Mathswatch CD" (containing revision lessons and practice worksheets covering the entire maths GCSE course at all grades). Year 11 are also encouraged to buy a set of practice papers specifically geared to the Edexcel GCSE course.

Statistics | Edexcel | 2ST01
Text book: All students have been issued with a GCSE Statistics text book entitled "Key Maths Statistics AQA version" which they keep at home. In school we follow the Edexcel GCSE Statistics course and use the Edexcel GCSE Statistics textbook during lessons. The books that the students have at home cover the same content as the Edexcel GCSE textbook used in school with a very few exceptions. Where this occurs, alternative resources are provided for the student to work from. As with Mathematics, students are offered the opportunity to buy Statistics Revision Guides and Workbooks through the school.
