Mathematics is diverse, engaging and essential in equipping pupils with the right skills to reach their future destination, whatever that may be. Our aim is to enable pupils to build a secure framework of mathematical reasoning, which they can use and apply with confidence. Our maths curriculum allows pupils to develop fluent knowledge, skills and understanding of mathematical methods and concepts. They are able to acquire, select and apply mathematical techniques to solve problems and reason mathematically, making deductions and inferences, and drawing conclusions. We set challenging targets in conjunction with high expectations for all pupils; targets which we hope to achieve through a variety of teaching and learning practices to engage and motivate pupils.

KS4 Exam Board Specification: EdExcel GCSE Mathematics (1MA1)
The Department offers subject-specific enrichment clubs and there is a regular drop-in session for both KS3 and KS4 pupils. The top-performing Key Stage 3 pupils are entered into the prestigious UKMT Junior Mathematics competition, where they compete against over 300,000 entrants nationally. The competition is designed to be a stimulating, challenging and rewarding experience for all entrants and will hopefully encourage these pupils to continue with Maths at A Level. Intervention sessions to consolidate prior learning and ensure maximum progress are at the heart of our delivery model.
