Mathematics

In the Maths Department we aim to make sure you are prepared for your path ahead. We will give you every opportunity to achieve your very best. Mathematics is vital in understanding the world around us. We will help and provide you with activities to develop your skills and understanding of important concepts and the world around you.

From year 7 to year 11 you will learn in many different ways, using books, puzzles, real life examples, games, quizzes and ICT. It’s vital that you leave school with an ability to deal with the demands of everyday life and the big wide world. This would be impossible without a secure understanding of maths.

As maths teachers, it’s our chosen duty to ensure our students are prepared for their lives ahead. Every student will be encouraged and pushed to achieve their very best. We will always be there, willing and ready to help you through the sometimes confusing world of mathematics, celebrating every success, promoting an environment of achievement, enjoyment, respect and hard work.

Homework is set regularly each week via email and you will always be given enough time to give you a chance to complete your work to the highest standard. Websites such as www.mymaths.co.uk and BBC bitesize are excellent resources that can help you consolidate what you have done in class, and extend your learning further to the next level or grade up.

KS3

Through key stage 3 (Y7 & 8 in Maths) you will be exposed to the four areas of mathematics: Number, Algebra, Geometry and Measures, and Data. You will be given opportunities to apply your skills from these areas to become fluent in the fundamentals of mathematics. You will solve problems by applying your maths with increasing sophistication and throughout each year you will be given targets to help you to improve from level to level.

KS4

Through key stage 4 (Y9/10&11) you will continue to be exposed to the four areas of mathematics: Number, Algebra, Geometry and Measures, and Data. You will be given opportunities to apply your skills from these areas to become fluent in the fundamentals of mathematics. You will solve problems by applying your maths with increasing sophistication and throughout each year you will be given targets to help you to improve from grade to grade.

You will sit your examinations in Maths at the end of year 11, but will be given opportunities to practise along the way, and we’ll be there to help you revise and achieve the best in your exams.
