Welcome to the Maths Department
Mathematics is a creative and highly inter-connected discipline that has been developed over centuries, providing the solution to some of history's most intriguing problems. It is essential to everyday life, critical to science, technology and engineering, and necessary in most forms of employment. A high-quality mathematics education therefore provides a foundation for understanding the world, the ability to reason mathematically, and a sense of enjoyment and curiosity about the subject.
Key Stage 3
Year 7, 8 and 9 follow the Key Stage 3 scheme of work covering number, algebra, geometry, and statistics.
Key Stage 4
Pupils follow the Key Stage 4 scheme of work to prepare for the new Edexcel GCSE (9-1) examinations at the end of year 11. They sit 3 exam papers at either Higher or Foundation tier. We combine the topic work with a focus on confidence, problem-solving and reasoning, enjoying some 'real-life' maths activities like geo-coaching, whenever we can.
Also, where appropriate, an Entry Level Certificate in mathematics is available to pupils to help develop and apply their mathematical skills.
