At Key Stage 3, our students develop their mathematical skills covering the topics of number, calculations, fractions, 2D geometry, algebra, proportion, 3D geometry and statistics. At Key Stage 4, students prepare for the Edexcel GCSE Mathematics exam. GCSE Statistics is available for students to take as an optional subject. Higher attaining students may also take a qualification in OCR’s Additional Mathematics, giving them experience of A level work.
Staff seek to inspire and motivate their students and the subject is presented in a wide variety of ways including those using technology such as computers and interactive whiteboards. We look for opportunities to extend our higher attaining students and arrange various activities including entry into UK Maths Challenge competitions.
Mathematics is a very popular option at Key Stage 5 and we offer A levels in both Mathematics and Further Mathematics.
