The Mathematics Department consists of nine skilled teachers, all of whom are subject specialists. We love Mathematics and strive to instil our passion for the subject into our students, giving them the skills they need to succeed in the wider world.
Our department is equipped with some of the latest technology. Two classrooms make use of CTOUCH interactive display boards whilst the remaining four use SMART Boards. We use software such as Autograph to help mathematical concepts and relate them to real life. In addition to academic study, we provide additional enrichment and support opportunities for our students. These include:
- Puzzle Club
- UKMT Junior, Intermediate and Senior challenges
- UKMT Team Challenge
- Maths Support - twice weekly drop-in sessions
Students study Mathematics for four lessons per week at Key Stage 3, studying:
- Ratio and Proportion
- Geometry and Measures
These lay the foundations for GCSE studies and beyond.
At GCSE, students follow a two-year, linear course. Our most able students are also given the opportunity to complete a GCSE Further Mathematics qualification, which awards grades up to A** (double-star).
At A-level, students follow a six-module course covering Pure, Statistics and Mechanics modules. Again, our most able students can study an additional six modules, including Decision, in order to achieve A-level Further Mathematics.
