log-in # Maths Mathematics is the study of all things number and problem-solving. It is an essential skill for children to develop throughout their school careers to prepare them for their lives.

A solid understanding of Maths will allow our students to make sensible financial decisions in their adult lives and be highly employable. A GCSE in Maths is a requirement for the majority of employers as it equips students with the ability to reason logically and be numerate in their working lives.

At Leeds East Academy we ensure that all students are working towards achieving fantastic GCSE Maths results from year 7 through our next steps curriculum. Students cover GCSE content through engaging lessons and challenging material in all year groups. This has led to significantly improved GCSE results in 2016/17.

Students will sit three GCSE exams at the end of Year 11 to determine their overall grade. They will sit either a foundation paper, which allows students to achieve grades up to a grade 5, or a higher paper, which allows students to achieve grades up to a grade 9.
