Maths

Mathematics transcends cultural boundaries and its importance is universally recognised. It develops students’ ability to calculate, reason logically, to problem solve and handle data, all important aspects in everyday living and employment.

Key Stage 4

On the basis of KS3 results and teacher recommendation, all students are prepared for GCSE Mathematics at the appropriate level with the final decisions regarding tier of entry being made during the first half of Year 11.

Our programme is designed to develop students’ mathematical skills by incorporating a wide range of activities, which deliver a rich mathematical experience. This will build confidence and has a particular focus on problem-solving and functional skills.

At the end of Year 11, there are three equally weighted written papers, one without a calculator and two with a calculator.
