Subject Overview:

Mathematics is a universal language that has been developed over centuries and provides solutions to some of history’s most intriguing problems. It is the foundation of 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.

The core aims of the curriculum is to build fluency in the fundamental skills of Mathematics. This will be through clear modelling of skills, frequent practice and introduction of complex problems. Students should be able to reason mathematically and be able to justify their solutions by following a line of enquiry and using proof. Students should then build up a full understanding of how they can solve problems by applying their Mathematics to a variety of routine and non-routine problems of increasing difficulty by breaking down problems in smaller understandable steps.

 Key Stage 3 Overview:

We follow the National Curriculum for Mathematics at Key Stage 3. Students will be expected to know, apply an understand matters, skills and processes within key strands of Mathematics; Number, Algebra, Ratio, proportion and rates of change, Geometry and measures, Probability and Statistics. 

Key Stage 4 Overview:

In Key Stage 4 we build on the core concepts of key Stage 3 in terms of fluency, reasoning and problem solving through the same strands of content. The course is covered in two tiers: higher and foundation tier. 

Key Stage 5 Overview:

Key stage 5 builds on many of the skills from Key Stage 4. It is split into 2 papers on pure and 1 paper on applied. There is an expectation of more independence from students to explore problem solving themselves. Alongside further work on core topics and extending graphing skills, students will apply Mathematics to other fields of study and be aware of the relevance of Mathematics to the world of work and to situations in society in general.
