Maths specialists have ensured students are ready to take on their GCSE exams.
Year 11 students at Nightingale Academy, in Edmonton, took part in a session with subject specialists from
within the Academies Enterprise Trust.
With information from the last assessment results, the specialists were able to target areas students needed
to focus on ahead of the exams this summer.
Andrew Scott, associate senior leader responsible for maths at Nightingale, said: “Students moved around to different maths topics and were engaged in problem-solving, key areas such as solving quadratic equations and addressed problems with ratio and proportions. They also took part in maths quizzes and competitions to generate a real interest in the subject.
“Feedback from students on the day said they found it very beneficial and interesting. It was a day very well spent as it took them away from the normal timetable and into a different learning environment.”
