Mathematics is the music of reason

Subject Overview

The mathematics department is committed to providing pupils with high standards of numeracy and a rich curriculum which promotes problem solving, reasoning and fluency. 

Throughout key stage 3 pupils build on their skills from key stage 2 and they widen their knowledge within the subject. They are provided with opportunities to apply mathematics to real life situations. We strive to challenge our pupils by covering mathematical concepts in greater depth.

At GCSE pupils follow the EDEXCEL specification, and we also offer a GCSE qualification in Further Mathematics.

 In Year 9 students can choose to study GCSE Statistics as one of their GCSE options.  The course offered is the Pearson Edexcel Specification.  Studying Statistics gives students the opportunity to broaden their knowledge that is relevant to everyday life, whilst also going beyond the current Statistics and Probability topics studies in GCSE Mathematics.  Students develop a core statistical grounding, as well as transferable skills and understanding that’s applicable to a range of other GCSE and A Level subjects, including A Level Maths, Geography, Psychology, Science and Computer Science.
