The Mathematics faculty aims to develop and improve numerical competence, abstract thought, spatial awareness and logical reasoning. We strive to enable pupils to gain enjoyment and confidence in mathematics. We aim that every student should be able to use and apply knowledge to solve problems in the areas of number, algebra, ratio and proportion, geometry and handling data.
The faculty’s curriculum is coherently planned and sequenced equipping pupils with the knowledge and cultural capital they need for future learning and employment. We provide regular opportunities for students to appreciate the subject’s contribution to everyday life and to the world of work. Throughout both Key Stage 3 and Key Stage 4, students also develop an ability to apply mathematics in other subject areas.
Our Year 7 scheme of work initially delivers topics that have not been taught in Key Stage 2 to avoid repetition. These topics, along with others are then build upon over Key Stage 3, in order to ensure that all students are fully prepared for Key Stage 4. Our aim is to ensure that upon leaving, all students are confident, resilient learners who are equipped with subject specific knowledge and skills to assist them in their future learning, everyday life and future employment.
