Maths is taught by an experienced and enthusiastic team of staff who are passionate about their subject. We thrive to deepen and broaden our students’ knowledge, skills and understanding of the subject for students of all abilities to equip them with essential life skills.
Throughout the course, students are given the opportunity to apply maths with a real life context and to solve problems through group work in lessons, and through internal and external competitions that show case and develop their confidence and cooperative learning. It enables them to become independent learners, and develop their confidence as well as being challenged with new and interesting concepts.
Mathematics is essential to everyday life, critical to science, technology and engineering, and necessary for financial literacy and most forms of employment. Through our teaching, we ensure our students become resilient young adults who understand the beauty and power of the subject.
As students move through KS3 and KS4, they are able to identify aspects of Mathematics linked to other subjects at school such as science, geography and even art. At GCSE, they will study the Edexcel GCSE Mathematics (9-1) which consists of one non-calculator and two calculator examination papers to be taken at the end of the two-year course.
Through our teaching and targeted interventions provided to Year 11 students, we inspire many of our high achievers to continue with the subject at A level. This is a fantastic launch pad for students wishing to continue higher education in a range of STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) related courses.
