Curriculum Intent

Mathematics is a creative and highly inter-connected discipline that has been developed over centuries, providing the solution to some of history’s most intriguing problems. It is essential to everyday life, critical to science, technology and engineering, and necessary for financial literacy and most forms of employment. A high-quality mathematics education therefore provides a foundation for understanding the world, the ability to reason mathematically, an appreciation of the beauty and power of mathematics, and a sense of enjoyment and curiosity about the subject

 

Aims

To ensure that all students:

• Become fluent in the fundamentals of Maths;

• Are able to reason mathematically, using the correct mathematical language;

• Can solve problems by applying Maths; and,

• Are able to use Maths effectively in other subjects and in everyday life.

 

Mathematics classes are setted in KS3 according to ability. This enables our team to plan lessons that address pupils’ needs and work at an appropriate pace and level of challenge. The highest sets enter the UK Mathematical Trust Challenge.

In Key Stage 4, the highest sets follow the Edexcel GCSE mathematics course at Higher tier, and are also given the opportunity to study the Level 2 Certificate in Further Mathematics, a qualification that stretches them towards AS Level topics. The rest of the cohort follow the GCSE course at Foundation level.
