This department consists of a experienced and committed team of staff who endeavour to deepen and broaden our students’ knowledge, skills and understanding of Mathematics.

 Every student has three lessons of Mathematics a week. Students are encouraged to solve problems through a variety of approaches and learn to be confident numerically while being able to apply their understanding into real life situations.

In Key Stage 3, students study in line with the National Curriculum. Students are taught lessons that cover the breadth of the subject: Number and Algebra, Statistics and Geometry and Measures. The scheme of work enables students to develop their Mathematical skills and build a solid foundation for life and in preparation for studies at Key Stage 4.

In Key Stage 4, all students are expected to take the GCSE. Students will study the Edexcel linear GCSE, which is offered at two tiers, higher and foundation. Both consist of a calculator and non-calculator examination at the end of the two year course. The majority of our students study the higher tier and good progress is made against targets.

For our most successful GCSE students, they have the opportunity to study A Level Mathematics (Edexcel), in Key Stage 5. We gain excellent results at A Level and this is a fantastic launch pad for a range of areas of higher education.
