Mathematics

Aims

Our Mathematics course gives students the opportunity to develop the ability to acquire and use problem-solving strategies. Learning how to select and apply mathematical techniques and methods to everyday situations, students will become confident to reason mathematically, make deductions and inferences, and draw conclusions. They will develop their skills to be able to interpret and communicate mathematical information in a variety of forms appropriate to the information and context.

What you will study

Students follow a linear GCSE course culminating with two examination papers. Topics include Number, Algebra, Geometry, Measures, Statistics and Probability. The examination requires students to develop and demonstrate their mathematical knowledge in these areas, together with applying knowledge and understanding to make connections between mathematical concepts.

Clubs

In the last year of Maths studies, the department offers Year 11 students the opportunity to access a range of after school coaching and intensive study in relation to their exams. In addition, we provide a scheme of independent trackable home learning, Maths Watch and My Maths to support progress. In the department, we also host a weekly Maths Challenge and a board games club to provide fun and engaging activities through which students can use their new numeracy skills.
