The Mathematics Department aims to help all students acquire the knowledge and skills they will need to be successful in the workplace.
Mathematics is taught by a team of well qualified and experienced professionals in a suite of classrooms. There is an interactive whiteboard in each room with access to a range of software to further the learning experience of our students. A variety of teaching and learning methods are used to challenge and motivate students.
Formal departmental assessment takes place throughout the year at regular intervals to help allocate students to the appropriate set, to inform students and staff of progress made and highlight areas for further intervention.
The school subscribes to mymaths.co.uk which can be accessed from home, via the internet, free of charge. We are also becoming increasingly involved with other online providers of mathematical enrichment.
Homework is usually set every week, either as a written task or mymaths activity, and the department offers help outside of lessons for all students.
Our top set students are entered for the United Kingdom Mathematical Challenge at Junior (Years 7 and 8) and Intermediate (Years 9, 10 and 11) level with many rewarded with Bronze, Silver or Gold certificates.
Our Key Stage 3 Programme of Study will cover:
Year 9 students begin their GCSE Mathematics course which is then continued into years 10 and 11.
The ‘new’ Mathematics GCSE course
The summer of 2017 witnessed the first examination of a ‘new’ Mathematics GCSE course.
Those students who have difficulty accessing the GCSE course follow the AQA Entry Level Certificate in Mathematics.
Mathematics is a key subject for everyone and provides skills that are beneficial on a daily basis as well as in the world of work. We encourage all our students to maximise their potential in this subject so they can leave us as confident and competent mathematicians.

Subject Lead for Maths is Miss Osborne who can be contacted by email at firstname.lastname@example.org
