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 purposefully small, average class size 20. This enables our team to plan lessons that address pupils’ needs and tackle and overcome the misconceptions and difficulties that can become real barriers to success in this subject. It also allows us to cater for the full range of mathematical ability.

In Key Stage 3, the highest sets enter the UK Mathematics Challenge. In Key Stage 4, the highest sets follow not only a GCSE mathematics course but also study the Level 2 Certificate in Further Mathematics, a qualification that stretches them towards AS Level topics.

If pupils find mathematics more difficult then there is also plenty of support and encouragement available.

Throughout all year groups a Mathematics Breakfast club runs every morning for pupils who have been identified as falling behind the standards they are capable of.
