In Mathematics at Ashlyns, our aim is for students to appreciate the power of maths and to promote curiosity, resilience and enjoyment to enable students to develop into confident mathematicians who are able to apply their knowledge and skills to a range of problems in the real world. We aim to achieve this by students:
- becoming fluent in mathematics through varied and frequent practice, so that they are able to recall and apply their knowledge rapidly to increasingly complex problems.
- being able to reason mathematically by investigation, conjecturing relationships and to be able to justify or prove using mathematical language.
- applying their knowledge to a variety of routine and non-routine problems with increasing sophistication
Our spiralling curriculum aims to deepen understanding thus allowing students to explore and study new concepts using prior knowledge and for students to appreciate the interconnected nature of mathematics. We strive for all students to acquire the knowledge and skills to achieve their potential and aim to provide a supportive and nurturing environment and to stretch and challenge at all levels.
Ashlyns is a popular and oversubscribed school with in excess of 1500 students including a growing and successful Sixth Form. The school was confirmed ‘Good’ by Ofsted in September 2023 with an ‘Outstanding’ Sixth Form provision. View our Ofsted report here.
