Mathematics

A dedicated team of ten Mathematics teachers ensure engaging lessons are delivered to provide students of all abilities with learning opportunities that inspire and challenge. A range of extra curricular activities are also available to enrich the learning experience.

KEY STAGE 3

Our program of study has been developed to meet the needs of changes within the National Curriculum. It is delivered in modular form, with between 3 and 4 units being covered each half term. Formal assessments are undertaken to enable effective monitoring of progress.

 

KEY STAGE 4

The department runs a two tier GCSE which gives every student the opportunity of gaining at least the benchmark grade 5. Our current KS4 cohort Years 9 to 11 follows the NEW linear Edexcel GCSE (9-1) course, sitting a three paper examination at the end of year 11.

In studying GCSE Mathematics, students will:

  • Develop fluent knowledge, skills and understanding of mathematical methods and concepts
  • Acquire, select and apply mathematical techniques to solve problems
  • Reason mathematically, make deductions and inferences, and draw conclusions
  • Comprehend, interpret and communicate mathematical information in a variety of forms appropriate to the information and context.

KEY STAGE 5

Both Mathematics and Further Mathematics are offered in the sixth form. Each is a six module course covering a range of pure and applied units. The GCSE is offered to all pupils who are still aiming to reach the benchmark C grade, a pre-requisite for most Further Education courses.​
