Welcome to Maths
The progress of each individual student is important to us. Our schemes of work enable all students to have a varied and interesting experience in Mathematics with differentiated activities in every teaching unit. Students are encouraged to be creative and flexible in their approach to learning and we cater well for the needs of students of all abilities. At KS5 we offer a variety of AS and A2 modules including Further Mathematics and we have many students who go on to study Mathematics at University.
A weekly lunchtime ‘Maths Surgery’ is offered to all KS4 and KS5 students to provide assistance with homework and revision for exams.
At KS3, Highly Able students are invited to a fortnightly ‘Maths Club’ and students from Y7-13 take part in annual ‘Maths Challenges’. Sixth Form students are invited to volunteer as mentors for KS3 and KS4 students.
All classrooms are equipped with interactive smartboards and on Upper Site students have access to 15 computers and individual workspace to use in study periods.
“It is rewarding to face a challenge in maths and succeed; it gives you a sense of achievement” (Y10 Student)
