The Mathematics Department strives for all students to perform well in their exams, and the proof is that there is a record number of students choosing Maths as a subject for study in the Sixth Form. Our aim is for this subject to be entertaining and stimulating so that pupils understand the relevance of what they learn and how it can be applied to real-life situations outside of school.
Our priority is to develop the students’ confidence so that they do not feel embarrassed when they make mistakes and are never afraid to try new challenges.
Outcomes – Students get top grades in maths and can continue maths into 6th form
Supporting Students – We have a fantastic numeracy intervention programme to support students.
Careers – numeracy skills are fundamental to all careers.
Key Stage 3
In Key Stage 3, students follow the challenging International Baccalaureate Middle Years Programme. This programme has led to our students making better than average progress in internationally recognised tests.
Key Stage 4
In Key Stage 4, students complete GCSE maths. This course ensures that students have a solid grounding in maths allowing them to either continue their maths education in 6th form and beyond or have the requisite skills to succeed in life.
