Mathematics

Why we study Mathematics
Mathematics is a creative and highly inter-connected discipline that has been developed over centuries, providing the solution to some of history’s most intriguing problems. It is essential to everyday life, critical to science, technology and engineering, and necessary for financial literacy and most forms of employment. A high-quality mathematics education therefore provides a foundation for understanding the world, the ability to reason mathematically, an appreciation of the beauty and power of mathematics, and a sense of enjoyment and curiosity about the subject.

Our Aim
The Mathematics Department strive to develop masterful Mathematicians through challenging all students in a stimulating lesson, whilst personalising tasks outside the classroom to address the gaps in an individual student's knowledge.

Teaching Mathematics in ability groups from the start of Year 7 ensures that all students work at a pace that provides the necessary balance between stretch, challenge, support and encouragement.

Our aim is to develop enthusiastic, independent and reflective learners who enjoy Mathematics and can apply their knowledge to a range of contexts. Students follow schemes of work appropriate to their ability. A sample of the topics covered in each scheme is detailed below. Detailed parent guides for each Scheme of Work are also available upon request.
