The maths department aims to create enthusiastic students who are independent, inquisitive and resilient in their learning of maths.

 

KEY STAGE 3

 

At key stage 3 we aim to deliver the curriculum using a mastery programme. Key topics are studied in greater depth to develop deep learning, rather than superficial conceptual understanding. Students become fluent in the fundamentals of mathematics, develop conceptual understanding through reasoning and the ability to recall, and learn to apply knowledge rapidly and accurately in a problem solving context.

 

KEY STAGE 4

 

Students at Key Stage 4 will add breadth and depth to the solid foundations formed during Key Stage 3. An interleaving curriculum ensures students regularly revisit and revise topics, developing understanding and acquiring new skills throughout the course. All students follow the same general pathway, but teacher differentiation and deviation ensures students are always appropriately challenged and feel encouraged and able to succeed. 

Student friendly module overview sheets and regular mini assessments empower students to take ownership of their learning and guide them with their revision for Key Assessments.

KEY STAGE 5

A level maths is a well regarded A Level ideal for students with a natural flair for maths who enjoy the subject and aren’t afraid of hard work. A level maths will help students to excel in a variety of careers, including those in engineering, finance and accounting. There are four core modules and two applied modules: statistics and mechanics. These modules will build upon topics students have met at GCSE: simultaneous equations and coordinate geometry. Students will also explore new topics including exponentials, logarithms and calculus.

​​

Core maths is a Level 3 qualification designed for students who do not wish to study A-level but who do wish to develop their mathematical, statistical and quantitative skills. It supports courses such as A-level psychology, sciences and geography as well as technical and vocational qualifications like engineering. Group work and discussion is strongly encouraged along with the application of mathematical skills and known techniques to new problem areas, which will include examples from economics, sociology, psychology, chemistry, geography, computing, and business and management.
