Welcome to Maths

The aims of the department are that each pupil on leaving school is numerate, has sufficient mathematical skills for the career of his/her choice, and will understand the mathematics likely to be encountered in everyday life. In addition we hope that pupils will acquire the logical abilities characteristic of the mathematician.

Key Stage 3

The Maths course at Key Stage 3 provides students with the necessary skills and knowledge to access the Edexcel Mathematics course in Key Stage 4.

In Year 7,8, 9 and 10 every maths lesson will focus on the new maths mastery curriculum. This will be embedded in lessons and in homework. We hope this will enable students to become fluent in the fundamentals of mathematics, so that they develop conceptual understanding and the ability to recall and apply mathematical knowledge rapidly and accurately.
