The Mathematics curriculum aims to provide an engaging, challenging curriculum where students, regardless of age, background, gender or ability develop an enthusiasm for Mathematics and its relevance to the world around them.
The curriculum aims to enable all of our students:
To develop the skills required to be financially and numerically literate to make sounds mathematical decisions within their personal life and the ever-changing world of work
To become fluent in the fundamentals of mathematics, through varied and frequent practice with increasingly difficult problems over time, so the pupils develop conceptual understanding and the ability to recall and apply knowledge rapidly and accurately.
To solve problems by applying their mathematics to a variety of routine and non-routine problems with increasing sophistication, including breaking down problems into a series of smaller steps to aid progression.
To communicate, justify, argue and prove using mathematical vocabulary.
To develop their resilience, confidence and independence, so that they can contribute positively to the life of the school and their wider environment.
Students in classes 4, 5 and 6 are working towards AQA GCSE Mathematics. There is a possibility of entering AQA Entry Level Mathematics for applicable students.
Studying Mathematics leads to a variety of careers including:
