£50 per year for textbooks, calculator and exam materials. Students will require the Casio fx-991 EX CLASSWIZ, which teachers will be demonstrating how to use throughout the year. However students may prefer to purchase a graphical calculator which has even more functionality and can also be used in class and in exams. Therefore we also recommend the Casio fx-CG50 graphical calculator.

Advanced Scientific calculator, Casio fx-991 EX CLASSWIZ (Available for £23.94 via Parent Pay)

Graphical calculator, Casio fx-CG50 (Available for £86.34 via Parent Pay)

If you are unsure what type of calculator is best, please discuss it with your teacher in September.
